R.E.M. / Out of Time / 25th anniversary deluxe edition to be issued in Nov

outoftime

Four-disc package with demos, live set & surround sound blu-ray

R.E.M.‘s classic 1991 album Out Of Time will be reissued as a special 25th Anniversary Edition in November, across a number of formats.

The ‘top of the range’ four-disc deluxe set combines the remastered album with a CD of 19 demo recordings (including every album track), a CD of the band’s performance at Mountain Stage (an important document, since the band famously didn’t tour the album) and a blu-ray disc which features the album in 5.1 surround sound and hi-res stereo. The blu-ray adds videos and ‘Time Piece’ an 18-minute Electronic Press Kit (EPK) which features in-studio footage, exclusive performances and more. The EPK and the 5.1 and hi-res stereo were first issued on the CD+DVD-A combo back in 2005, but this content is extremely welcome on blu-ray in this new edition.

The demos were recorded at John Keane Studio in early 1990 and should be a fascinating listen. They include versions of Losing My Religion and Texarkana with different lyrics.

A 3LP vinyl set will include all the demos, as will a cut-down two-CD edition of this 25th anniversary reissue. All versions will feature extensive liner notes by Annie Zaleski featuring interviews from all four band members and producers Scott Litt and John Keane.

The Out of Time 25th anniversary editions will be issued on 18 November 2016, via Concord Bicycle Music.
