Soundgarden Announce Superunknown 20th Anniversary Box Set; band’s hit album to be reissued in a variety of deluxe formats.
Hard to believe, but Soundgarden’s smash album Superunknown will be turning 20 on March 8th.
To commemorate the occasion, the Seattle Grunge architects will be releasing a deluxe special edition (although it won’t be released until June).
The Superunknown special edition will be released in various formats; there will be a 2-disc collection, featuring the remastered album, and a second disc of B-sides, rarities and demos.
For the diehards, there will also be a 5 CD edition, with even more B-sides and rarities in addition to a disc of the album remastered in Blu-ray Audio 5.1 Surround Sound.
The 5-disc edition includes hardbound book with liner notes by Rolling Stone’s David Fricke, previously unreleased photos and “reimagined” album art.
And vinyl fans fear not; Superunknown will be released as a double-LP on 200-gram vinyl.
All formats will be officially released on June 3rd. To herald today’s announcement, the band leaked a YouTube clip of a rehearsal take of The Day I Tried To Live, which you can watch below:
For fans too impatient to wait, Soundgarden will satiate fans appetites this Spring; on Record Store Day (April 19th) the band will release Superunknown-The Singles. Which will include five 10-inch records with the singles and B-sides from Spoonman, The Day I Tried to Live,Black Hole Sun, My Wave and Fell on Black Days.
