About this album

Heaven Up Here is the second album by the British post-punk band Echo & the Bunnymen, released in 30 May 1981. In June 1981, Heaven Up Here became Echo & the Bunnymen’s first Top 10 release when it reached number 10 on the UK Albums Chart. It was also the band’s first entry into the United States albums charts when it reached number 184 of the Billboard 200. Heaven Up Here released the singles “A Promise” and “Over the Wall”. Recorded at Rockfield Studios near Monmouth in Wales, Heaven Up Here was co-produced by Hugh Jones and the band. A generally well received album by fans in the United Kingdom and by critics, Heaven Up Here won the “Best Dressed LP” and “Best Album” awards at the 1981 NME Awards. The album has also been listed at number 471 in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. After the public and press interest garnered from Echo & the Bunnymen’s debut album, Crocodiles, the band released the Shine So Hard EP which maintained their profile. Work then soon began on their second album, Heaven Up Here. Following musical differences between the band and Crocodiles producers Bill Drummond and David Balfe, Hugh Jones was brought in to produce Heaven Up Here. Jones had previously engineered Crocodiles and co-produced Shine So Hard with Drummond. Jones would later go on to produce the band’s 2005 album Siberia. The band were also given an additional producer credit. The album was recorded as Rockfield Studios near Monmouth in Wales during March 1981.
