The Beatles' "White Album" Expansion arrival date revealed

The Beatles 25/09/2018

The Beatles will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of releasing their masterpiece "White Album" with a massive reissue that arrives on 9th Nov.

The reissue edition will feature newly mixed tracks by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer, Sam Okell, in stereo and 5.1 surround sound. The box set also boasts previously unreleased 27 early acoustic demos and 50 session takes.

A statement on their website says, "With their ninth studio album, The Beatles took the world on a whole new trip, side one blasting off with the exhilarating rush of a screaming jet escorting Paul McCartney’s punchy, exuberant vocals on “Back In The U.S.S.R.” “Dear Prudence” came next, John Lennon warmly beckoning his friend and all of us to “look around.” George Harrison imparted timeless wisdom in “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” singing, “With every mistake, we must surely be learning.” Ringo Starr’s “Don’t Pass Me By” marked his first solo songwriting credit on a Beatles album."

It continues to say that the album had invited listeners to "venture forth and explore the breadth and ambition of its music, delighting and inspiring each new generation in turn."

A super deluxe edition will include six CDs and Blu-ray. A deluxe edition of the album will have three CDs while the other contains four LPs.
