Drop Nineteens Announce Delaware Reissue, Share New Cover of Lana Del Rey’s “White Dress”: Listen

Drop Nineteens are reissuing their classic debut, Delaware, on June 21 via Wharf Cat. The album was remastered by Carl Saff, and the new vinyl edition features a new cover photo. The original Delaware artwork featured a photo of a girl with a gun in her left hand. Now, the girl is holding a small bouquet of flowers. A portion of proceeds from the reissue will go to Artists for Action to Prevent Gun Violence.

“We decided to change the cover image, not so much to self-cancel, but because we simply will not put the image of a young person with a gun in their hand out in the world in today’s climate,” the shoegaze band explained in a press statement. “To be fair, the concept was probably overstated even in 1992. We love the new cover design, and we are proud to be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this Delaware reissue to the charity Artist for Action to Prevent Gun Violence.”
