Animals remaster arrives in September

Posted by madhack on Jul 1, 2022

Pink Floyd have finally announced September and October release dates for the 2018 remix/remaster of Animals. The releases begin with CD, vinyl, Blu-ray, and SACD formats and culminate in a Deluxe box set containing vinyl, CD, DVD-Audio, and Blu-Ray versions; all versions are now available for preorder here and on the band's site.

The album has been remixed/remastered by original engineer James Guthrie and the DVD and Blu-Ray releases will include a 5.1 mix alongside the stereo version. No mention is currently made of a 5.1 mix on the SACD; this may be an oversight, as it seems a strange choice to release on that format in 2022 to begin with (although we'd venture to guess that SACD players are slightly more popular with Floyd fans than they are with the larger population), and 5.1 support is one of its advantages.

It's not quite the full Immersion Edition that some of us had hoped for, but it's still great to see this classic album get some love of its own.
