Pink Floyd are set to release a new box set in celebration of the 50th anniversary of The Dark Side of the Moon.
The deluxe box set, which is due to be released on March 24, has been created to include CD and gatefold vinyl of the newly remastered studio album and Blu-Ray + DVD audio featuring the original 5.1 mix and remastered stereo versions.
The set also includes additional new Blu-ray disc of Atmos mix plus CD and LP of The Dark Side Of The Moon – Live At Wembley Empire Pool, London, 1974.
The Dark Side Of The Moon – Live At Wembley Empire Pool, London, 1974 will also be released independently on CD and vinyl.
Additionally, “Pink Floyd – The Dark Side Of The Moon: 50th Anniversary,” a commemorative book that is part of the deluxe box offering, will also be published separately by Thames & Hudson on March 24 to coincide with the box set release.
Curated by photographer Jill Furmanovsky and art directed by Hipgnosis co-founder Aubrey Powell, the book showcases rare and previously unseen photographs taken during The Dark Side Of The Moon tours of 1972-1975 and was created with the involvement of the band members.
The Dark Side of the Moon is the eighth studio album by Pink Floyd. It is one of the best-selling albums of all-time, having sold over 45 million copies worldwide.
The record has been certified 14× platinum in the United Kingdom and topped the Billboard Top LPs & Tape chart, where it has charted for 965 weeks in total.
