Tears For Fears will follow up deluxe box-set editions of The Hurting and Songs From the Big Chair with a five-disc reissue of the duo’s third album The Seeds of Love, which will feature a new 5.1 Surround mix of the record and an hour’s worth of previously released material.

The 4CD/1 Blu-ray box set of The Seeds of Love is due out Oct. 9, and can be pre-ordered now. The 1989 album, which entered the U.K. charts at No. 1 and went platinum in the U.S., also will be reissued on CD, in single- and double-disc formats, and on vinyl, in standard and picture-disc releases.

The deluxe set features the original album, remastered in 2015, on the first disc, while the second disc includes the singles off the album and their B-sides. The third and fourth discs contain the unreleased material, namely early mixes, demos and live jams.

You can hear one of those previously unreleased songs below: the demo for “Rhythm of Life,” a song written by Roland Orzabal and Nicky Holland that didn’t make The Seeds of Love, though singer Oleta Adams would follow up her breakout appearance on the TFF album by recording the song for her 1990 record, which Orzabal co-produced.

The Blu-ray includes three mixes of the album, including the new 5.1 Surround mix that was done by Steven Wilson in conjunction with Orzabal. The set also includes extensive liner notes, including new interviews with Orzabal, Curt Smith and more by Paul Sinclair of SuperDeluxeEdition.

Full tracklist below.
