2013's celebration of Rush includes the highly anticipated release of a remixed version of the band 2002's album Vapor Trails. In 2009, two tracks from Vapor Trails ("One Little Victory" and "Earthshine") were remixed for the Retrospective III collection, setting fans into a frenzy in anticipation of a possible remixed version of the entire album being released one day. Four years later, that day approached.
"Vapor Trails was an album made under difficult and emotional circumstances - sort of like Rush learning how to be Rush again - and as a result, mistakes were made that we have longed to correct. David Bottrill's remixes have finally brought some justice and clarity to this deserving body of our work," says Geddy Lee.
"Every song has been given a new life, from the fire of "One Little Victory," "Secret Touch," and "Ceiling Unlimited" to the melodic musicality of "Sweet Miracle" and "How It Is"… these songs have been redeemed. Thank you David!"
The remixed version of Vapor Trails is also be included in the 7-disc boxed set The Studio Albums 1989-2007, which features every studio album Rush recorded for Atlantic Records.
