Both 1LP and 1CD formats will feature the latest album remasters, with vinyl editions cut at Abbey Road Studios. The album artworks have been closely restored to the original sleeve designs, overseen by Malcolm Garrett, the visionary designer behind the band’s first three albums.

The band’s first five albums defined the sound and style of generations. Acclaimed singles like Hungry Like The Wolf, Rio, Girls On Film and Save A Prayer dominated singles charts around the world on their release, and continue to soundtrack the lives of millions of fans. The music and magic within these five records propelled the band to the very front of the global music scene, establishing their status as cultural icons.

The news of the reissues arrives as the band look ahead to a big summer of live activity, including an exclusive UK festival headline performance at Latitude Festival on 28 July.

This major festival booking will follow sold-out arena tours across the UK and North America through 2023, the latest in a series of landmark achievements including their 10th UK Top 5 album release Danse Macabre, headlining London’s Hyde Park, performing at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Concert at Buckingham Palace, closing the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in their home town of Birmingham, and sold out shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden, and three nights at the Hollywood Bowl.

All this underpinned by their 2022 induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, a moment truly cementing the multi-GRAMMY, BRIT Award and Ivor Novello winners as one of the most successful and influential bands of their time.
