PINK FLOYD – ” Animals ” 2018 Remix

Posted: June 30, 2022 in MUSIC

Pink Floyd’s long-awaited reissue of their 1977 studio album “Animals” will be issued in September (and October) of this year. This will be the first time the album will have been available on 5.1 Surround Sound. The band’s tenth studio album, Animals was recorded by band members David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Roger Waters and Richard Wright at Britannia Row Studios in London throughout 1976 and early 1977, and was produced by the band themselves. The record peaked at number two in the UK and number three in the US, and is considered as one of the band’s best works.

The 32-page booklet features rarely seen behind the scenes photographs of the album sleeve shoot along with live images and memorabilia. The album’s iconic artwork has been reimagined for the new release, which you can see in full below.

With the original 1977 album cover being such an iconic piece of stand-alone art, I had the chance to update it, which was a rather daunting task,” says Storm Thorgerson’s Hipgnosis partner Aubrey ‘Po’ Powell who has has re-designed the album cover for the modern era. “Hipgnosis took the opportunity to re photograph the image to reflect a changing world, and by using modern digital colouring techniques I kept Pink Floyd’s rather bleak message of moral decay using the Orwellian themes of animals, the pig ‘Algie’, faithful to the message of the album.”

Animals 2018″ mix will be reissued in all formats on 16th September, except for the deluxe gatefold edition which is 7th October 2022.
