Label: MUTE

Release Date: May 10, 2024

A redesigned cover (refining the original’s artwork), plus an extensive 16-page booklet with photographs and new sleeve notes by the cultural theorist and author Alexei Monroe make this an essential edition of Laibach’s third studio album.

Opus Dei (1987), Laibach’s first album for Mute, was mixed by Rico Conning (Wire, Pere Ubu, Swans, William Orbit) and the band’s classic Laibachian interpretations of Opus’ ‘Live Is Life’ (here presented in English as ‘Opus Dei’ and in German as ‘Leben heißt Leben’) and Queen’s ‘One Vision’ (reworked as ‘Geburt Einer Nation’) soon saw Laibach emerge from the shadows as they garnered support from the likes of MTV and ITV’s The Chart Show. This mainstream spotlight, coupled with memorable features in the music press, opened up opportunities for Laibach that included their first world tour. The album was also featured in the book “1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die” (edited by Robert Dimery).
