Originally released in 1984, following the band’s evolution from the Southern Death Cult, to Death Cult, and then simply The Cult, Dreamtime finds the outfit featuring Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy, pivoting from their goth and punk roots into something eclectic, aspirational, and adventurous. Rife with lyrical references to the indigenous cultures of the Americas and Australia, and set against a more bombastic and muscular musical backdrop, Dreamtime hints at what would envelop the band over the next four decades, a dedication to their wholly unique songwriting, both musically and thematically, and the frenzy that was soon to come with the release of Love only a year later.
“Spiritwalker,” the first single from the album, hit #1 on the U.K.’s independent chart.
We are delighted to work with both major and independent labels, and offer this alongside many other albums for pre-order. Above, you will see the scheduled release date. In the event of any delays to this date, we will try to keep this page updated, specifically in the “Shipping on” area. Unfortunately, this is becoming more common, so please bare this in mind.
