Soundgarden Announce Superunknown Reissues
They'll celebrate the album's 20th anniversary with two releases.
The first release will consist of two deluxe versions of the classic album available from June 3, 2014. "The Deluxe Edition" of Superunknown is a 2-CD package featuring the remastered album along with a second disc containing demos, rehearsals, B-sides and more. "The Super Deluxe Edition" is a 5-CD package featuring the remastered album, additional demos, rehearsals and B-sides and a fifth disc containing the album mixed in Blu-ray™ Audio 5.1 Surround Sound.
The Super Deluxe Edition will also be packaged in a hardbound book with a lenticular cover, liner notes by David Fricke and newly reimagined album artwork designed by Josh Graham, as well as never-before-seen band photography by Kevin Westenberg. A 2-LP gatefold of the original 16 vinyl tracks remastered on 200-gram vinyl in a gatefold jacket will also be made available.
The other release announced by Soundgarden today is a limited edition set of five 10″ vinyl records featuring the Superunknown singles and associated b-sides, with newly interpreted artwork sleeves by Josh Graham. The set will be released on April 19 for Record Store Day, and as such will only be available at local record stores.
The band have shared the full tracklisting and information for all of the various versions on their website.
