‘1979’ is a concept album and sculptural object, featuring nine songs by Deru accompanied by nine short films by video artist Anthony Ciannamea, that are housed in a customized handheld video projector. The subject matter is nostalgic and emotive, focusing
on common origins and shared human experiences. The limited run of projectors sold out immediately, but the videos will be made publicly available through an interactive website featuring a gallery of user-submitted “memories”. Vinyl copies of the
album sold out very quickly as well, which is why ‘1979’ is finally getting the repress treatment after two years out of print. LPs include original inserts and download cards and will be available for purchase immediately.
