Little Boots' 'Hands' 10th anniversary edition

£56,737

1,099

5th June 2019

I'm sat writing this on the 10th anniversary of my debut album 'Hands', a record I am still immensely proud of,  thinking about the incredible journey myself and my fans have been on. Its been a rollercoaster at times, but through it all you have supported me and I feel above all its a ride we have been on together, and I want this to continue. 

Hearing how special this record was from so many of you made me realise I had to do something to celebrate its anniversary. This record changed my life, and I'm touched and honoured it affected so many of you. We've grown up together and I want to continue our journey, and Kickstarter feels like the perfect way to do that.

 'Hands' 

'Hands' was a top 5 record in the UK and quickly was certified gold, I toured the world and played many festivals including Glastonbury and Coachella, I appeared on TV and on covers of magazines and was nominated for awards... it was a crazy blur of a time!

 The journey continues...

After the craziness died down I started my own label 'On Repeat Records' and have continued releasing music and touring ever since, reclaiming the creative control I felt I lost in the major label system, and since released 2 full length LPs and countless EPs and collaborations, including a Grammy nomination. You guys have always understood my choices and supported me through that. Without you I simply would not be able to carry on doing what I do!

The Lost album


  There were many songs written around the time of 'Hands' that remain gathering metaphorical dust on old hard drives, which as a pop music fan pains me, and it dawned on me this would be a great opportunity for some of them finally to be heard. I worked with so many incredible pop producers and writers including Greg Kurstin, Red One, Biff Stannard, Jim Elliot and Pascal Gabriel to name a few, and have enough songs  to make up a kind of 'lost' album that never got to see the light of day. There was in particular a song called 'Echoes' which was meant to be a follow up single but was never released, and fans have been asking for it ever since!

If we reach our goal, I will include a special bonus disc of these demos including 'Echoes', and other rarities requested by fans currently not available on vinyl or streaming services, including original versions, bonus tracks and remixes.

The vinyl

We have completely re-designed the iconic original artwork by Chrissie Abbot, into a full colour double gatefold with printed sleeve. The double discs will be high quality heavy weight GOLD vinyl. The sleeve comes printed with all original lyrics, plus the lyrics for the new track inclusions and demos. I really want nothing more than this design to come to life and be beautiful object we can all touch and feel and play and dance to! Many of you remarked the original record never had a full printed vinyl sleeve as it was only issued as a picture disc, so it would be wonderful to make this finally happen.

Side 2 (Rarities)

1. Stuck On Repeat (Original mix) 2. Stuck On Repeat (Fake Blood Remix) 3. Catch 22  (Vinyl exclusive) 4. Not Now (Vinyl exclusive)  5. Magical (Vinyl exclusive) 

Stripped back

As a classically trained pianist I've always performed many of these songs stripped back in an acoustic setting of piano and vocals, and I wanted to revisit the key tracks from the album and record some special intimate versions. I've worked hard to re-approach and rethink the songs from a totally new angle, and have recorded, produced and performed these myself from my home studio. I think the result is really specially and I hope you love these versions as much as I do! These will be available as a digital mini album in addition to the vinyl.

Other stuff

I've tried to listen to you guys as much as possible during this process. One thing I saw more than anything is you asked for CDs, so if we hit our target you shall get CDs! 

We also wanted to do some special merchandise items, so have planned some brilliant 'Stuck On Repeat' vinyl slip mats to go with your shiny new records. We are designing a special exclusive 10th anniversary T-shirt design, and even custom trucker hats! You can also pledge for one of my special signed stylophones used on tour, signed lyric or sheet music sheets of the song of your choice, or even have me come DJ your party or host a private gig!

I will be heading out on tour to celebrate the anniversary with my original live band, and we are planning to perform as much of 'Hands' in its entirety as possible. I really hope to see you on the road, you can also pledge for Meet & Greet and signing sessions here.

The ask

In order to make this beautiful vinyl come to life in the quality it deserves, we have to cover all the manufacturing costs, plus buying out the licenses from Warner Brothers and mastering costs. We have re-designed the artwork and new merchandise which we also need to manufacture, plus PR and marketing, which as an independent artist is getting more and more difficult to afford. If we hit the target all products will be made and delivered to you by November. If we raise beyond our target all profits will be put back into the project - I would love to make some video content, and put some money into making the live show extra special... who knows, maybe we could even fund some new music!

As a completely independent artist I have the freedom to undertake projects like this as and when I want, but I need your help. More than ever this feels like a release we can be equally invested in.  You guys have always supported me through everything I do so I hope you will continue, and together we can celebrate this amazing decade growing together with some beautiful reminders! 

All my love,

LB x
