Includes demos of previously unreleased songs and non-album b-sides
R.E.M have announced the 25th anniversary reissue of their seventh studio album ‘Out Of Time’. First released in 1991, it included singles ‘Losing My Religion’ and ‘Shiny Happy People’.
The reissue will be released on November 18 via Concord Bicycle, and will be available in three different formats: 2-CD, 3-LP, and a deluxe 4-disc set.
The sets will included a remastered version of the album as well as demos of previously unreleased songs and non-album b-sides.
The 4-disc deluxe version comes with an additional live recording of a 1991 show at Mountain Stage and a Blu-Ray disc that contains hi-resolution audio and 5.1 Surround Sound versions of Out of Time, all the album’s music videos, and the 1991 electronic press kit ‘Time Piece’, which includes a collection of studio and performance footage.
The reissue will also come with liner notes by journalist Annie Zaleski that features interviews with all four band members and the album’s producers Scott Litt and John Keane.
Earlier this year, the band announced the reissue of three classic albums, 1986’s ‘Lifes Rich Pageant’, 1987’s ‘Dead Letter Office’ and 1988’s ‘Eponymous’.
