Thomas Dolby’s second album ‘The Flat Earth’ has been expanded for the 40th anniversary.

‘The Flat Earth’, released in February 1984, featured the hit song ‘Hyperactive!’.

Dolby says, “We mixed the album at Pete Townshend’s studio in Twickenham. I lived on the river in Hammersmith, so I purchased a classic slope-backed speedboat, and commuted to work every day up the Thames, waving to passers-by as if I was on Lake Garda with Gina Lollobridgida.”

The 40th anniversary edition expands the original seven tracks to a 23 song set with addition live, demo and alternate versions.
