For Its 50th Anniversary, Tom Waits’ ‘Closing Time’ to be Reissued

The legend’s debut album gets a special reissue

To mark the 50th anniversary of Tom Waits’ debut album, Closing Time, ANTI- Records has announced a new vinyl reissue.

The double LP set is pressed on black and clear vinyl cut at 45 RPM, with half-speed mastering by London’s Abbey Road Studios. It’s packaged in a gatefold jacket specially created with thicker board and black poly-lined inner sleeves. Pre-orders are now available through Waits’ website, ahead of its June 2nd release.

Last year, Waits marked the 20th anniversary of his albums Alice and Blood Money with similar vinyl reissues.

The musician and actor was most recently seen in Paul Thomas Anderson’s 2021 film, Licorice Pizza.
