Aqualung: Dark Green Vinyl 2LP


Release date: 18 November, 2022

Eponymous debut album, now available on vinyl for the first time since its release 20 years ago. Featuring the haunting hit single ‘Strange & Beautiful (I’ll put a spell on you)’ from the VW Beetle TV advert which launched Aqualung into the world and an additional album of live versions.


Matthew Hales aka Aqualung, started as a musician and record producer in the early 2000s. Aqualung’s breakthrough came when his song "Strange and Beautiful” was featured on a television advertisement for the new VW Beetle during the summer of 2002 and went on to become a Top 10 hit in the UK Singles chart later that year.


Hales' work has earned him various awards and nominations, including two Grammy and three Ivor Novello nominations.
