SDE exclusive sold out

For it’s 35th anniversary, BMG are to reissue Rick Astley’s debut album Whenever You Need Somebody as a 2CD deluxe edition. We are pleased to offer SDE readers another cool physical music exclusive for 2022 because the SDE shop is offering an exclusive edition which comes with a 7-track CD single of Rick’s worldwide smash single ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’!

Produced by Stock Aitken Waterman, Whenever You Need Somebody reached number one in the UK (also topping the chart in many other countries) and features the hit singles ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’, ‘Together Forever’, ‘Whenever You Need Somebody’ and the Nat King Cole cover ‘When I Fall In Love’. All four songs reached the top 3 of the UK singles chart, but of course ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ was absolutely massive, reaching number one virtually everywhere including Britain, America, Canada, Australia and across Europe. Rick was always popular in America and ‘Together Forever’ also topped the US singles chart.

Order the 2CD deluxe of Whenever You Need Somebody from the SDE shop & get a FREE 7-track CD single of ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ (limited to 500 copies)

The album has been remastered at Abbey Road and this new deluxe edition has been created with the input of Astley. It offers 21 bonus tracks, including original remixes, B-sides and Rick’s own ‘reimagined’ versions of the original singles from the album (first issued on the 2019 Best of Me compilation). The double CD also comes with an expanded booklet that includes previously unseen photographs of Rick from 1987/1988 and liner notes written by Craig McLean, featuring contributions from Rick, Mike Stock and Pete Waterman.

Order this deluxe edition via SDE and you get a FREE 7-track CD single of ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ which features all seven of the original era remixes/variants. The single was never issued on CD at the time and in fact this is the first time all these mixes have been brought together on one disc and it’s probably not going to happen again! Just 500 of these CD singles are being manufactured, so the first 500 people who order get this unique bonus item. We are being strict and limiting orders to one per customer. Do not order multiples please, as any such orders will be cancelled.

Whenever You Need Somebody 2CD deluxe edition will be released on 20 May 2022 (was 6 May).
