Pearl Jam are to release four different Special Editions of their 1991 debut album ‘Ten’ next March.
The remastered album reissue will be accompanied by a remix version created by Pearl Jam longtime producer Brendan O’Brien.
The four different packages will feature varying bonus material, including extra tracks: ‘Brother’, ‘Just a Girl’, ‘State of Love and Trust’, ‘Breath and a Scream’, ‘2,000 Mile Blues’ and ‘Evil Little Goat’.
Other extras include a DVD of the band’s MTV Unplugged performance, recorded in 1992, a live LP of from their ‘Drop
in the Park’ concert, and a replica Eddie Vedder composition notebook.
Commenting on the remixed version of the 12 million selling album, O’Brien says: “The band loved the original mix of ‘Ten’, but were also interested in what it would sound like if I were to deconstruct and remix it. The original ‘Ten’ sound is what millions of people bought, dug and loved, so I was initially hesitant to mess around with that. After years of persistent nudging from the band, I was able to wrap my head around the idea of offering it as a companion piece to the original – giving a fresh take on it, a more direct sound.”
Pearl Jam’s Ten Club are offering pre-orders of the reissue from today (December 10). Physical copies will be available to buy from March 23, 2009.
