Today marks the arrival of a long told rumor of a Deluxe update for The Seeds Of Love, the 1989 classic set from Tears For Fears. It was a highly anticipated album that followed up the multi-platinum runaway success of Songs From The Big Chair (1985). While it did not do the traffic of Songs From The Big Chair, it still left a positive feeling with fans.

On October 9, The Seeds of Love will celebrate its existence with a handful of reissue forms. Obviously, the most exciting for super fans (right, Joy?!) is the assembly of a 4CD/BD package that delivers all things related to the album including a Steven Wilson 5.1 Surround remix found on the Blu-ray inclusion.

The four CDs are stuffed with the following: CD1 contains the original album remastered for the set. CD2 (sub-titled The Sun) offers a collection of sixteen “45s and B-sides”; CD3 (The Moon) adds in fourteen “Radio Edits and Early Mixes”, and CD4 (The Wind) packs twelve recording tracks in “Demos, Diversions, and Jams”. The BD (The Rain) finishes off with the previously mentioned 5.1 Steven Wilson 5.1 Surround mix, the original Bob Clearmountain and David Bascombe mix, and the new Andrew Walter 2020 remaster.

The shoebox-shaped Box will provide a 36-page booklet with pictures, notes and interviews (by Paul Sinclair of Super Deluxe Edition), and a replica miniaturized tour program.

The Seeds of Love will be reissued on 4CD/BD Box, vinyl LP, DD, 2CD Deluxe (with original album remaster and “The Sun” CD), and a single CD (original album remastered only).

Who’s excited now?!
