Wednesday, 04 September 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

R.E.M. have announced a reissue of their 1994 album 'Monster'.

To celebrate the record’s 25th anniversary, a deluxe edition is scheduled to land on November 1 via Craft Recordings across a number of formats, including a six-disc box set with five CDs and one Blu-Ray.

The box set will include the original album, as well as a remixed version from R.E.M. producer Scott Litt, a CD of unreleased demos, plus a live album of the band's 1995 performance in Chicago. The Blu-Ray, meanwhile, will contain a 90-minute documentary called Road Movie and all six of the album's music videos. There's also a book with rare photographs and liner notes from writer Matthew Perpetua.

An expanded edition of 'Monster' will also be available, featuring the original album and the 2019 remixed version, on double vinyl LPs or two CDs, complete with reimagined cover art by longtime R.E.M. designer Chris Bilheimer. The remastered album will also be available as a standalone vinyl LP, with Bilheimer’s original 'Monster' art.

Alongside the news, the band have shared a remix of What’s The Frequency, Kenneth? Listen below and check out the new artwork.
