Gaffa named And the Glass Handed Kites the best Danish album of 2005. Mew also won the 2005 MTV Europe Music Award for Best Danish Act. Pitchfork Media ranked the single “The Zookeeper’s Boy” #92 on its list of top 100 tracks of 2006.

We celebrate the 15th anniversary of And the Glass Handed Kites by releasing a special limited and expanded edition on vinyl, accompanied by a 2-CD set released by Music On CD (MOCCD13789). Both the 2-LP and 2-CD contains 10 bonus tracks, including the Mogwai remix of “Why Are You Looking Grave”, “Dark Design (red version)”, “Animals Of Many Kinds”, the unreleased song “Wherefore Are You Not There”, and many more.

Mew will be playing a series of live shows in 2020. These shows will feature music from the album, some rarely heard B-Sides and more from our entire catalog. The first round of shows will be in London, Helsinki, Copenhagen, Oslo & Tromsø.
