Alphaville / Forever Young super deluxe

Remastered • 3CD+DVD+LP package • Includes rarities, remixes & demos

German synthpop band Alphaville‘s 1984 debut album Forever Young will be reissued as a five-disc super deluxe edition in March, for its 35th anniversary.

The singles pulled from this album include the international hit ‘Big in Japan’, the anthemic title track, ‘Sounds Like A Melody’ and ‘The Jet Set’.

The album has been remastered (for the first time, apparently) and this package comes with two additional CDs, one with original single versions, B-sides and remixes and the other with 16 original demos. The fourth disc is a DVD which boasts a documentary and promo videos.

This new super deluxe edition also includes the new remaster on vinyl and comes complete with a 24-page vinyl-sized booklet, created by the art director of the original album in close collaboration with the band and contains a variety of rare and unpublished photos, sleeve notes and various other testimony.

Bernhard Lloyd from the band says: “The production of the Forever Young album was a great adventure back then, and the result was almost perfect for us. Our focus was on the vinyl album, because in 1984 CD mastering was still in its infancy. Fortunately, I was still able to find all the original analog master tapes, which were actually only recorded as safety at the time. With the new mastering, the album now sounds much warmer, rounder and more transparent – just as we had imagined back then. ”

This is being issued by Warner Music/Rhino, so the package is likely to be consistent with their Fleetwood Mac / Ramones reissues. A two-CD deluxe edition and single vinyl LP of Forever Young will also be available. All are released on 15 March 2019. The band will also tour this year in Germany to celebrate this anniversary. The super deluxe seems well priced right now in the UK.
