According to Variety“Apple Corps and Universal Music have confirmed that a deluxe celebration of the 1966 release – which, like the previous Beatle boxes, will include a Giles Martin remix – is in the pipeline for this autumn.”
Variety further notes that an official announcement about the project, including a release date and details on what material will be included, is likely to come in September.
Revolver will follow on the heels of other Beatles classics to be remixed and released as a boxed set. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles (aka The White Album) and Abbey Road have all received such treatment. Last year, the 1970s leave it became the latest Fab Four album added to the list.
In 2021, Martin admitted he was looking “to do something really innovative” with Revolver“as opposed to just a remastering job.”
“There’s no point in just doing this to make money or as a sales thing or because we’ve done the others,” he continued. “It’s more important that we do it for the right reason.”
Published Aug. 5, 1966 Revolver saw the Beatles once again change the world of popular music and offer deeper experimentation than anything they had done before. Created with producer George Martin (Giles’ father) at London’s EMI Studios, the LP used cutting-edge recording techniques and is considered a landmark rock release. “Taxman”, “Eleanor Rigby”, “She Said She Said”, “Good Day Sunshine” and “Got to Get You into My Life” were among the album’s many classic tracks.
