We are so excited to finally be able to announce our selections from the 2022 33 1/3 open call. We know that it feels like a long time since the submission window closed, but we’ve been hard at work reading through proposals, sending them on to external advisors*, discussing internally, getting in touch with authors, and making the projects official. So without further delay, here is the list of new titles:
Bright Eyes’ I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning by Hannah Seidlitz
Café Tacvba’s Re by Carmelo Esterrich
Cocteau Twins’ Blue Bell Knoll by Chris Tapley
Erykah Badu’s New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh) by Kameryn Alexa Carter
Garth Brooks’ In the Life of Chris Gaines by Stephen Deusner
John Cale’s Paris 1919 by Mark Doyle
Kate Bush’s Hounds of Love by Leah Kardos
Ministry’s The Land of Rape and Honey by Jason Pettigrew
Modest Mouse’s The Moon & Antarctica by Zachary Petit
No Doubt’s Tragic Kingdom by Rhae Lynn Barnes
Pulp’s This Is Hardcore by Jane Savidge
Sinead O’Connor’s Universal Mother by Adele Bertei
The Isley Brothers’ 3+3 by Darrell M. McNeill
Various Artists’ Red Hot + Blue by John S. Garrison
Yo La Tengo’s And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out by Elliott Simpson
You can expect these books to begin publishing in early 2024. We hope that this list includes both some well-loved and new albums for you to explore.
We also wanted to give a big heartfelt thanks to each and every person who took the time to submit a proposal. There were many brilliant submissions and many, many proposals that we very nearly included in this list.
*A big thanks to our external advisors, who were integral in our selection process: Samantha Bennett, Sean Maloney, boice Terrel-Allen, Sarah Piña, and Ryan Pinkard.
