New John Lennon Box Set To Be Released
A new box set featuring 36 John Lennon solo tracks will be released on October 9 to mark what would have been the Beatles legend's 80th birthday.
"A collection of some of the most vital and best loved songs from his solo career will be released via Capitol/UMe as a suite of beautifully presented collections, titled 'Gimme Some Truth. The Ultimate Mixes,'" a press release said.
Executive produced by Lennon's widow Yoko Ono and produced by their son Sean Ono Lennon, all 36 songs were handpicked by Yoko and Sean. All the songs have been "completely remixed from scratch, radically upgrading their sonic quality and presenting them as a never-before-heard Ultimate Listening Experience."
Gimme Some Truth is named for Lennon's 1971 excoriating rebuke of deceptive politicians, hypocrisy and war, a sentiment as relevant as ever in our post-truth era of fake news.
The new box set will be available in a variety of formats, including as a Deluxe Edition Box Set that offers several different ways to listen to this engrossing 36-track collection with stunning new mixes across two CDs alongside a Blu-ray audio disc containing the Ultimate Mixes in Studio Quality 24 bit/96 kHz HD Stereo, immersive 5.1 Surround Sound and Dolby Atmos.
