It’s now 20 years since the arrival of The Captain, the debut from Kasey Chambers, and she’s celebrating the milestone in style with a massive tour and album re-release.

The Captain: Deluxe Edition will be released on May 17, which is exactly 20 years to the day of the long-player’s original release. Plus, it will be on vinyl for the first time – orange vinyl!

The double CD release will feature the original 12 album tracks, a newly-unearthed track from the era in Hey Girl, seven tracks from the 2000 version of the album, 13x 1999 interview tracks and a 32 page booklet with lyrics, touring photos, promo photos and an image of the original handwritten lyrics to The Captain, all in a funky slipcase.
