Ultravox’s Vienna album remixed in stereo and 5.1 by Steven Wilson for 40th anniversary release

The classic 1980 Ultravox album Vienna has been remixed in 5.1 multichannel by Steven Wilson, for its 40th anniversary. Due out in October, the 5CD+DVD box set will include new stereo and 5.1 mixes by Wilson (including all related B-sides). 

Originally produced by Conny Plank, the album was the band’s first to feature Midge Ure on lead vocals, and originally hit number 3 in the UK album chart.  The title track was cruelly denied the coveted top spot by Joe Dolce’s novelty song Shadapp You Face but is now widely regarded as a classic nonetheless.

The six-disc box set features 66 tracks, 44 of which are previously unreleased recordings or mixes. As well as Wilson’s new stereo mix, the set includes the original stereo mix, freshly re-mastered from production tapes, live and rehearsal recordings, and single and 12-inch tracks.

This 5CD+DVD will be packaged in a 12×12-inch slipcase and includes a 20-page commemorative booklet featuring notes from the band, unseen photos from Midge Ure’s and Chris Cross’ personal collection, plus four A4 art prints.
