MUSE will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their ‘Origin of Symmetry’ album by revisiting the material and providing fans with a special remix record to mark the occasion.
The remixed album will be called ‘Dubbed Origin of Symmetry: XX Anniversary RemiXX’ and features redone tracks by the band and producer Rich Costey, which reveals remastered instrumentation as certain tracks that previously got buried within the mix now can be more prominently featured.
One example of this would be the recorded strings the band laid down at Abbey Road Studios on the song “Citizen Erased.” The new remixed version is the initial instant free song that fans can hear on streaming services or by pre-ordering the 20th anniversary edition.
Frontman Matt Bellamy says, “In revisiting the album, what we found was the original mixes on the singles, like ‘Plug In Baby’ and ‘Bliss,’ were pretty good so they were the hardest ones to improve. It was the deeper album tracks like ‘Micro Cuts’ where we were able to make massive breakthroughs.”
Fans can also look for the addition of “Futurism” to the set. The track was initially a bonus cut on the Japanese edition of the album and was tagged on to the record on streaming services. Plus, there’s brand new modernized artwork for the Origin of Symmetry: XX Anniversary RemiXX created by Sujin Kim.
The Origin of Symmetry: XX Anniversary RemiXX is due digitally on June 18 and on vinyl on July 9. You can pre-order the album at this location.
