LP, “Plus” Bundle, and “Deluxe” Bundle: Pledge Music
Originally released in 1994, the 10-track collection featured interpretation of Erica Jong’s written work. In fact, the album’s title is derived from a phrase found in Jong’s 1973 work, Fear of Flying, itself a landmark in second-wave feminist literature that sparked controversy for its representation of female sexuality. With Zipless, Daou presented a music manifestation of those written words with a sensuous combination of jazzy and soulful, chilled-out and empowered, smooth and danceable.
Nearly 25 years on, Zipless: Songs From the Works of Erica Jong is being revisited with an extensive Pledge Music reissue campaign which marks the album’s vinyl debut. The album will be available in a variety of configurations, including a limited-edition 180-gram black vinyl pressing with a bonus lyric sheet, a 11×22″ poster, and a download code for the album.
Also available is a “Zipless Plus” bundle. It features a signed edition of the LP package, an expanded digital download with the original album and 8 bonus remixes, many of which are previously unavailable in the digital domain. Also included in the bundle is a special CD called Zipless: Bootleg Rehearsal Tapes, as well as a magnet and pin. The “Zipless Deluxe” bundle adds to the above a signed dedication on the LP, a signed and dedicated vinyl test pressing, two original publicity photos from the album’s initial release, and a signed 11×17″ print. The signed test pressing and signed print are also available separately.
