Beach Boys announce huge Pet Sounds 50th anniversary reissue

on March 23, 2016, 2:45pm

Brian Wilson is already set to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beach Boys’ seminal album Pet Sounds with an extensive world tour that kicks off this week. Now it’s been revealed that the band is prepping a massive reissue for a June 10th release.

Aptly dubbed Pet Sounds (50th Anniversary Edition), the four-CD/Blu-ray collectors edition comes packaged with a hardbound book that contains the song lyrics. In addition to the remastered Pet Sounds in both stereo and mono, the set includes new, high-resolution stereo, mono, instrumental, and 5.1 surround mixes, session outtakes, alternate mixes, and never before released live recordings. The live recordings come from concerts at Michigan State University, Carnegie Hall, New York’s Paramount Theater, and more.

A two-disc deluxe edition will present the album in stereo and mono along with selected highlights from the additional tracks in the collectors edition. Mono and stereo versions will also be released on vinyl.

Pre-orders are going on now via Universal Music. Below, find an image of the collectors edition plus the complete tracklisting.
