A lot of people jumped on the Variety article published last week stating that The Beatles’ Revolver is to be the next album to get the full box set re-issue/remix treatment.
One key sentence in that article made us hang back: “An official announcement of the project is not expected to come until some time in September….”, meaning that while it was interesting (and probably true), the Variety article was still just speculation. There was no independent confirmation from someone within the Beatles/Apple Records circle.
But, over the weekend we got that confirmation – and from the horses mouth so to speak.
On Sunday none other than Giles Martin Tweeted:
We think you can take that as proof-positive a re-mixed, remastered Revolver will definitely be on the shelves sometime in October or early November.
Of course details of exactly what we’ll be getting are still scarce, so we await the official announcement with great interest.
A subsequent Giles Martin Tweet indicates that a 5.1 surround mix is definitely on the cards:
So, it’s happening!
