The reissue will be out on March 7, in the 20th anniversary year of the record’s original release.
A collectors’ edition of the album will come with four remastered CDs and a gatefold vinyl release of the band’s ‘Live In LA, 1991’ set. A CD of remixes by contributers including Andrew Weatherall will be included, plus a remastered version of their 1992 ‘Dixie-Narco’ EP.
A half-hour documentary DVD, The Making Of ‘Screamadelica’, will also be included, as well as a 50-page book including a contribution from Loaded‘s founding editor James Brown.
Frontman Bobby Gillespie, speaking about why they enlisted friend and sometime collaborator Shields to help out, told NME: “He’s just really good with sound and frequencies, we thought it was a fun thing to do.”
He added: “Kevin, Andrew [Innes, Primal Scream guitarist] and myself went down to the mastering room. Kevin‘s the one person in the world that all remastering engineers would hate to see walking into the studio, when we walked in the guy nearly had a fucking heart attack!”
