Merge to reissue classic albums in 2014 starting with 'Nixon'

As a part of Merge Records big 25th anniversary celebration in 2014, the label has already announced a 7-inch subscription series and a 25k Chapel Hill to Durham road race. Now they've announced their next big project which will be to reissue some classic Merge albums throughout the year.

They'll start things off with Lambchop's 2000 album Nixon which has been out of print for a while. The reissue will be available on CD and vinyl and it will include a bonus disc featuring White Sessions 1998: How I Met Cat Power, a solo session frontman Kurt Wagner recorded for Radio France in 1998. It will be out on January 28.

Check out the music video for the classic track "Up With People" from Nixon below.
