Pharoah Sanders' 1977 album Pharoah is being reissued in a new box set from David Byrne's Luaka Bop. The box is arriving September 15, and it features remastered recordings that include the original album plus two previously unreleased live performances of "Harvest Time."

It also comes with a booklet featuring rare photographs and an interview with Sanders, who gave the re-release project his blessing before his death in 2022.

Starting this year and running through 2024, the box set will also be supported by a series of international performances called "The Harvest Time Project: A Tribute to Pharoah Sanders," with a variety of artists coming together to perform "Harvest Time." The first takes place November 12 at Le Guess Who? in Utrecht with Irreversible Entanglements, Domenico Lancellotti, and special guest Tisziji Muñoz under the musical direction of Joshua Abrams.
