Pink Floyd To Release Dolby Atmos Mix Of ‘Animals’

Pink Floyd have announced they will release a Dolby Atmos mix of their tenth studio album, Animals, on Blu-ray and digital formats through Warner Music on May 17.

The band said the Animals 2018 Remix – Dolby Atmos, will feature the 2018 remix by their longtime producer James Guthrie as well as High-Resolution stereo and 5.1 mixes alongside the 1977 original stereo mix, and digitally.

The upcoming remix will feature new artwork in the digipack format with a 16-page booklet, a sticker and a postcard.

The album’s iconic cover of a floating pig between two chimneys of the Battersea Power Station, conceived by Roger Waters and designed by Storm Thorgerson, has been reimagined for the new release. The new take, created by Aubrey “Po” Powell and Peter Curzon, still features the pig and the power station but has been modernized with various light projections.

According to a press release, with the new mix, “Listeners will feel like they are inside the song as music moves around and above them.”

The Animals record looked at the social-political conditions of mid-1970s Britain via George Orwell‘s classic “Animal Farm” that depicted different classes of people as animals.

The album, which was recorded at the band’s Britannia Row Studios in London, peaked at No. 2 in the U.K. and No. 3 in the U.S.
