To mark its 50th anniversary, The Beatles’ The Beatles (‘White Album’) will be reissued in a variety of new packages on November 9.

The album’s 30 tracks have been newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell in stereo and 5.1 surround audio, joined by 27 early acoustic demos and 50 session takes, most of which are previously unreleased in any form.

“In remixing ‘White Album’ we’ve tried to bring you as close as possible to The Beatles in the studio,” explains Giles Martin in his written introduction for the new edition. “We’ve peeled back the layers of the ‘Glass Onion’ with the hope of immersing old and new listeners into one of the most diverse and inspiring albums ever made.”

New versions of The Beatles (‘White Album’) include the individually numbered Super Deluxe version (6xCD + Blu-Ray), Deluxe (3xCD / 4xLP) and Standard Vinyl (2xLP).
