Afraid Of Sunlight(Deluxe Edition)
When released in June 1995, Marillion earned critical acclaim with Afraid of Sunlight – the band’s eighth studio album and final release on EMI.
The album peaked at #16 in the U.K. and introduced fans to the Top 30 hit, “Beautiful.” The collection opens with a new version of Afraid of Sunlight that was remixed earlier this year by Michael Hunter. It also includes the original mix by the album’s producer Dave Meegan. The set also has a live recording of Marillion performing at the Rotterdam Ahoy arena on September 29, 1995 during the group’s tour supporting Afraid of Sunlight. The Blu-ray features the album’s original 1995 mix along with several new mixes (48/24 LPCM Stereo Remix; 48/24 DTS 5.1 Mix; 48/24 LPCM 5.1 Mix). Video content includes interviews with the band discussing the album, a new documentary about Afraid of Sunlight, and a promo film for “Beautiful.” The Blu-ray disc also collects the nine bonus recordings from the remastered edition of the album that was released in 1999, plus 17 previously unreleased songs that include studio jams and early versions of Afraid of Sunlight tracks like “Beyond You,” “King,” “Out Of This World” and “Beautiful.” Marillion are on tour in the UK and Europe November/December 2019 including two nights at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall.
