Oh great — just what we need.
Universal Music will, on May 21, release a Soundgarden box set called The Classic Album Selection.
The box set will contain the original A&M recordings of Soundgarden’s seminal albums, Louder Than Love, Badmotorfinger, Superunknown and Down On The Upside plus last year’s live record of the band’s 1996 West Coast tour, Live On I-5.
The albums will be presented as a set of mini-LPs in gatefold wallets with booklets and exclusive new artwork designed by widely acclaimed designer and long-term Soundgarden collaborator Josh Graham, says a press release.
Of course, Soundgarden have been working on new material in recent months…or are we at the point now that it’s years?
A release date and title for the new Soundgarden studio album have yet to be announced.
