The Beatles announce ‘Revolver’ deluxe editions

New sets available this fall

The Beatles have announced newly mixed and expanded special edition packages of Revolver for October 28th via Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol/UMe. The special edition’s new stereo and Dolby Atmos mixes of the album’s opening track “Taxman” make their digital release debuts with the announcement and preorder launch.

The Revolver album’s 14 tracks have been newly mixed by producer Giles Martin and engineer Sam Okell in stereo and Dolby Atmos, and the album’s original mono mix is sourced from its 1966 mono master tape. Revolver’s sweeping new special edition follows the universally acclaimed remixed and expanded special editions of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band in 2017, The Beatles (White Album) in 2018, Abbey Road in 2019, and Let It Be in 2021.

All the new Revolver releases feature the album’s new stereo mix, sourced directly from the original four-track master tapes. The audio is brought forth in stunning clarity with the help of cutting edge de-mixing technology developed by the award-winning sound team led by Emile de la Rey at Peter Jackson’s WingNut Films Productions Ltd. The physical and digital Super Deluxe collections also feature the album’s original mono mix, 28 early takes from the sessions and three home demos, and a four-track EP with new stereo mixes and remastered original mono mixes for “Paperback Writer” and “Rain”. The album’s new Dolby Atmos mix will be released digitally.

The Revolver Special Edition (Super Deluxe) will contain 63 tracks including stereo and hi res stereo and mono and Dolby Atmos mixes. The 5 CD Super Deluxe Edition features 100-page hardbound book in a 12.56” x 12.36” slipcase. The 4 LP/7-inch EP will be released on half-speed mastered 180-gram vinyl with 100-page hardbound book in a 12.56” x 12.36” slipcase.

Disc one will contain the 14 track Revolver album in new 2022 stereo mixes. Discs two and three contains stereo and mono outtakes, rehearsals and demos. Disc four contains the original mono master of Revolver with disc five featuring the Revolver EP of “Paperback Writer” & “Rain” in both new and original mono mixes remastered.

The 2 CD edition will be released in a digipak with 40-page booklet abridged from the Super Deluxe book and contain session highlights from discs two and three and the EP.

Revolver Special Edition (Standard) will contain 14 tracks in a digipak with new stereo mixes. The LP will contain the new stereo mixes on half-speed mastered 180-gram vinyl. A limited edition LP vinyl picture disc with the new stereo mix and illustrated with the album cover art will also be offered.

Across all the configurations, Revolver’s special edition showcases the GRAMMY-winning original album artwork created by The Beatles’ longtime friend, German bassist and artist Klaus Voormann. The Super Deluxe CD and vinyl collections’ beautiful book features Paul McCartney’s foreword; an introduction by Giles Martin; a thoughtful, enlightening essay by Questlove; and insightful chapters and detailed track notes by Beatles historian, author, and radio producer Kevin Howlett. The book is illustrated with rare and previously unpublished photos, never before published images of handwritten lyrics, tape boxes, and recording sheets, as well as 1966 print ads and extracts from Voormann’s graphic novel, birth of an icon: Revolver.
