New Adventures In Hi-Fi: Deluxe 25th Anniversary Edition (2-CD + 1-Blu-Ray)
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of R.E.M.’s tenth studio album, New Adventures in Hi-Fi. This deluxe 2-CD/1-Blu-ray set offers a trove of a/v content, including the remastered album, B-sides and rarities, a never-before-released 64-minute outdoor projection film (shown on buildings across five cities in 1996 to promote the album’s original release), and a previously unreleased 30-minute EPK. Additionally, the Blu-ray features New Adventures in stunning Hi-Res and 5.1 Surround Sound audio, plus five HD-restored music videos including “Bittersweet Me,” “Electrolite,” and “E-Bow the Letter.”
Housed in a 52-page hardcover book, the collection includes archival photographs—many of which have never been published—plus new liner notes from journalist Mark Blackwell and reflections from all four original band members, as well as from Patti Smith, Thom Yorke, Scott Litt and more.
