Marillion are to reissue their 1995 album Afraid of Sunlight.
Afraid of Sunlight was the band’s eighth studio album and their final release on EMI. The two new editions will be a 4CD+blu-ray set which includes a new stereo mix and a 5.1 surround mix and and a 5LP vinyl collection.
Both collections open with a new version of Afraid of Sunlight that was remixed earlier this year by Michael Hunter. On the CD version of this reissue, disc two also includes the original mix by the album’s producer Dave Meegan.
The blu-ray in the CD set features the album’s original 1995 mix along with the new mix in both stereo and surround sound (48/24 LPCM Stereo Remix; 48/24 DTS 5.1 Mix; 48/24 LPCM 5.1 Mix). Video content includes interviews with the band discussing the album, a new documentary about Afraid of Sunlight, and a promo film for the song ‘Beautiful.’
The Blu-ray disc also mops up the nine bonus recordings from the remastered edition of the album that was released in 1999, plus 17 previously unreleased songs that include studio jams and early versions of Afraid of Sunlight tracks like ‘Beyond You,’ ‘King,’ ‘Out Of This World’ and ‘Beautiful.’ These aren’t available on any of the CDs.
Afraid of Sunlight will be reissued on 1 November 2019.
