Guns N' Roses Share Updated Version Of November Rain Featuring 50-Piece Orchestra

Friday, 04 November 2022 Written by Jon Stickler

Guns N’ Roses have unveiled an updated version of their epic hit November Rain.

The revamp features a 50-piece orchestra, conducted and arranged by Grammy Award-winner Christopher Lennertz.

Offering a more cinematic aesthetic, the fresh rendition stays true to the original, but the synthesized orchestration by frontman Axl Rose has been replaced by the lush, grandiose sound of a full orchestra. The mixing, which was handled by Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree, also makes Rose's vocals stand out more. Wilson explained:

"My mix of a fully orchestrated version of the Guns N' Roses evergreen November Rain appears on the just announced 30th anniversary reissue of 'Use Your Illusion'. The new 2022 version is the same performance as the original, and mixed faithfully to the established version, but with newly recorded orchestration replacing the sampled sounds used at the time."

It'll appear on the upcoming 30th anniversary 'Use Your Illusion' box set, which is due out on November 11 via UME/Geffen. The collection will contain 'Use Your Illusion I & II', which turned 31 in September, and will be available in several configurations.

The rock legends are currently touring Asia, before Australian and New Zealand gigs later in November and December.
