We are beyond thrilled that NAKED Record Club's 6th album is by french indie band Tahiti 80 whom we first discovered in 1998 and have loved ever since.

To celebrate the 10 Year Anniversary of 'Ballroom' NAKED has re-issued it on vinyl for the first time since 2014. NAKED's exclusive version (remastered for 2024 by Johanz Westerman) features a very special bonus track - an exquisite cover version of Brazilian singer songwriter Marcus Valle's 1971 'Garra' - on vinyl for the first time.

'Ballroom' is limited to just 500 hand numbered copies. It is pressed on blue eco-friendly vinyl and packaged in a beautiful eco-friendly sleeve. And 'Ballroom' is making vinyl history by being NAKED's 1st release made with a brand new technology which prints the label removing the need for paper.
