Plus new box sets and ‘Best Of’ compilation on the way
Pink Floyd are set to re-release remastered versions of the albums in their back catalogue with EMI later this year.
The band resolved a legal dispute with the label earlier this year and have now announced an extensive reissue campaign under the banner ‘Why Pink Floyd?’, which will start in September this year. All 14 of their studio albums have been remastered and repackaged, and will be released on September 26.
On the same day special and deluxe editions of their classic album ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ will be released, with both a six-disc ‘Immersion’ box set and a two-disc ‘Experience’ box set coming out. They will also be released on vinyl and in digital editions.
On November 7, meanwhile, the band’s 1975 album ‘Wish You Were Here’ will be released in the same formats as well as a new compilation, ‘A Foot In The Door: The Best Of Pink Floyd’. Finally, on February 7 next year, their 1979 LP ‘The Wall’ will be available as ‘Immersion’ and ‘Experience’ collections and on vinyl and digital editions.
Roger Faxon, CEO of EMI Group said: ”This is a unique collaboration between EMI and one of the most creative and influential bands in history. We have worked together for more than a year on this programme which incorporates all the elements that have made Pink Floyd one of the most inspiring forces in modern music.”
