The Replacements have offered up the first taste of their “radically re-imagined” version of their 1989 record Don’t Tell a Soul in the form of the new Matt Wallace mix of album opener “Talent Show,” which, as promised, is a bit more rough-hewn than what was released 30 years ago.
You can stream the song below via Spotify or YouTube.
Rhino Records on Sept. 27 will release Dead Man’s Pop, a 4CD/1LP box set that features Don’t Tell a Soul “mixed as it was originally intended” and will include a disc of largely unreleased outtakes and a 1989 live set that spans two CDs. Full details and tracklist are available over here.
