Foxbase Beta, a re-working of their classic debut album, Foxbase Alpha.

Re-produced by the electro pop genius Richard X, Foxbase Beta is a ‘spruced-up’ yet reverential re working of the original album – it is essentially a 2009 up-date of Foxbase Alpha, giving it a shot of vodka and a loving caress.

The album will be initially available via the group’s web site as a limited edition double disc CD of 3000 copies only. A single disc version will available via Rough Trade shops. The double-disc release will feature Foxbase Beta and a second disc of the band in conversation with Richard X about the making of the album plus 3 unreleased bonus tracks from the original sessions; single disc copies feature Foxbase Beta only.

The album will be preceded by the release of a limited 12” featuring alternate mixes of the tracks from the album:
1. Only Love Can Break Your Heart – Richard X extended vocal
2. Only Love Can Break Your Heart – Richard X extended instrumental
3. Spring – Air France Remix
4. Girl 7 – Richard X Foxbase Beta album version
