Tears For Fears

A year after reissuing their debut The Hurting in a bonus-stuffed box set, Tears For Fears is set to do the same for their monstrously successful second album, with an ambitious, multi-format reissue of 1985’s smash Songs From the Big Chair due out this fall.

While the band has yet to announce the reissue, Universal Music Group’s catalog database shows a Nov. 4 release date for Songs From the Big Chair in five formats: a single-disc release, a double-disc Deluxe Edition, a Blu-ray Audio edition, a vinyl pressing and a six-disc Super Deluxe Edition that will feature four CDs, a DVD and a Blu-ray Audio disc.

Amazon.co.uk also has initial listings for the Songs From the Big Chair reissue.

No tracklists have yet been revealed, so it’s not clear what bonus material will be included this time around. The album — which hit No. 1 in the U.S. and features the hit singles “Shout,” “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” and “Head Over Heels” — was reissued in 1999 and again in 2006 as a 2CD Deluxe Edition.

UPDATE: Our friends at SuperDeluxeEdition — having worked on the reissue — have the full tracklist for the Super Deluxe Edition, which includes “every commercially issued b-side and remix of the era, previously unreleased radio sessions and early mixes and a high-resolution 5.1 surround sound mix courtesy or highly respected remixer and engineer Steven Wilson.”

Check out the tracklist below, and read more about the reissue at SuperDeluxeEdition.
