The new album, "Diary of a Lost Girl" was released on Jock Records on 21 February 2014.

Former This Mortal Coil and The Hope Blister vocalist Louise Rutkowski releases "Diary of a Lost Girl"; her first solo album, and the product of a writing partnership with Irvin Duguid. Funded through direct-to-fan platform PledgeMusic, "Diary of a Lost Girl" has been described by its supporters as, "A truly haunting and beautiful album", "Beautiful, stirring, and alive with emotion", and "Pure poetic, lovelorn angst at its best". Produced by Irvin Duguid, it includes mixes by Calum Malcolm (The Blue Nile), and Steve Orchard, and marks a return to the writing of original material by Louise since her music career began with the soul-influenced band Sunset Gun, signed to CBS Records in the 1980s.

“…immaculately produced”
“…elegantly accomplished”

Following the sell-out release of the This Mortal Coil box set in 2011, 4AD are replacing all existing CD versions of the albums with the re-mastered, Japanese editions.

All 3 albums have been re-mastered for the HDCD format from the original analogue studio tapes. They are packaged in paper sleeves printed in Japan, along with inner sleeves and booklets and have re-designed visuals by Ivo Watts-Russell and Vaughan Oliver, 4AD's long-time visual partner, which cater to the reduced size, feature gatefold sleeves and remain inspired by the originals.

"One of the most fascinating bands at work in the mid-80s."

"Luminously re-mastered"
