Tears for Fears Treat 'The Seeds of Love' to Deluxe Box Set
Last September marked 30 years since Tears for Fears released The Seeds of Love, and the beloved new wave outfit have now announced plans to give it an expanded reissue.

The Seeds of Love will be reissued October 9 via UMe/Virgin in a variety of formats. Along with CD, deluxe CD, vinyl and picture disc editions, the album will also be available as a Super Deluxe box set.

Deluxe editions of the release feature the original album alongside a new 5.1 mix by Steven Wilson, completed in conjunction with the group's Roland Orzabal. The set is rounded out with "all the relevant B-Sides, alternate mixes and around 60 minutes of previously unheard demos and live rehearsals."

All that music arrives housed in a shoebox-style enclosure, complete with an extensive booklet featuring new liner notes and interviews. You can pore over the set's massive tracklist below.

The Seeds of Love followed Tears for Fears' acclaimed 1985 album Songs from the Big Chair and would be the last album from the group to feature both Orzabal and Curt Smith until 2004's Everybody Loves a Happy EndingThe Seeds of Love is certified double platinum in Canada.
