Reworkings. Versions. DiS Label Discounts.

Last year, Drowned in Sound's independent label returned.

For me, this was a huge moment. I spent from 2003-2008 living my dream of running a label and working with some amazing artists ranging from Martha Wainwright and Suede's Brett Anderson to Metric, thisGIRL, Emmy The Great, Kaiser Chiefs, The Stills, Redjetson, Youthmovies, Jeniferever, Komakino, Les Incompetents, Bat for Lashes and Blood Red Shoes (there's a Spotify playlist of our releases here).

The label felt like such a core part of my being because empowering artists and connecting music to people is something I've done since I was 16 promoting gigs and writing about music.

Drowned in Sound's new label's first album release was Versions by The Anchoress, featuring her reworking of 'This Is Yesterday' by Manic Street Preachers as seen with the band at Glastonbury, alongside versions of songs by The Cure, Radiohead, Halsey, All About Eve, R.E.M., Nirvana, Depeche Mode, New Order, and more.


To celebrate 6 months since the release and all lovely plaudits it got, we're having a flash sale of the CD version of Versions, which contains Catherine's in-depth liner notes about why she chose the tracks and some insights into how she produced the record.

You can support our label by grabbing yourself one of the final copies of the eco-mix vinyl (every copy is unique) or pick up the discounted CD over on Bandcamp here:
