Previously unreleased Grace Jones material has surfaced!

Grace Jones's iconic 1981 album Nightclubbing is going to be reissued next month via Island Records/Universal, as reported by The Quietus. Nightclubbing, usually regarded as one of the most essential Grace Jones records, is her best-selling studio release to date and yielded classic singles such as "Demolition Man", "Libertango (I've Seen That Face Before)" and most notably, one of her definite signature hits, "Pull Up To The Bumper".

In addition to the remastered edition of the album, there'll be an alternative 2-disc version of it released for the Record Store Day; this version includes previously unreleased rarities such as a cover of "Me! I Disconnect From You" by Tubeway Army, the Gary Numan-fronted new wave group. This previously unheard cover from the Nightclubbing sessions has now surfaced, and the tropical number can be listened to below:

And here's the original version by Tubeway Army as well, should you be interested:

Meanwhile, Jones has been reported to be working on a memoir set to be released next autumn, whilst material for a new album is also in the making. And for slightly newer Grace Jones material, check out Popheaval's review of her 2008 comeback album Hurricane.
