Chrysalis will release a deluxe edition of Ultravox’s Vienna album

Originally released in July 1980, Ultravox’s fourth album Vienna was their most successful, scoring them a No.3 UK album chart spot and cementing new vocalist and guitarist Midge Ure as a key player.

To celebrate its 40th anniversary, Chrysalis Records are reissuing Vienna as a six-disc set featuring the original album, a 2020 Steven Wilson Stereo Mix, rarities, rehearsals, a live concert from St. Albans, and a DVD surround sound disc. The box will also feature new sleevenotes by all four band members, unseen photos from the album cover shoot, as well as photos from Midge Ure’s personal collection.

The limited edition vinyl box will comprise of four clear vinyl LPs, including a half-speed master of the original album and the full St. Albans 1980 gig.

The boxed set will be available from 9 October, preceded on 29 August by a special Record Store Day 12″ reissue of Sleepwalk.

A vinyl box set will also be available exclusively from the official band store.
