Animals 2018 Remix will be released on CD, LP (with gatefold artwork), Blu-ray, SACD and Deluxe Gatefold formats. The Deluxe Gatefold version includes LP, CD, audio Blu-ray, audio DVD and a 32-page book.
The Blu-ray and DVD audio include the 2018 remix in Stereo, 5.1 Surround (both by James Guthrie) and the original 1977 Stereo mix. The 32-page booklet features rarely seen behind the scenes photographs of the album sleeve shoot along with live images and memorabilia.
The album artwork has been re-designed for the modern era by Storm Thorgerson’s Hipgnosis partner Aubrey ‘Po’ Powell.
Animals is the tenth studio album by Pink Floyd, originally released in January 1977. As a concept album, focusing on the social-political conditions of mid-1970s Britain, it was a change from the style of the band’s earlier work.
