The Beatles are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the iconic, 4-time-GRAMMY-winning 1967 album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

And what better way to celebrate than with multiple reissue packages? Available on May 26, the album can be purchased digitally or in five other versions: CD, Deluxe (2 CDs), Deluxe Vinyl (2 LPs), and Super Deluxe (4CDs, DVD, Blu-ray boxed set).

According to the band’s website, “The album is newly mixed by Giles Martin and Sam Okell in stereo and 5.1 surround audio and expanded with early takes from the studio sessions, including no fewer than 34 previously unreleased recordings.” You can find out a little bit more about the expanded edition in the trailer below.

On a Facebook post on the band’s page, Paul McCartney shared, “It’s crazy to think that 50 years later we are looking back on this project with such fondness and a little bit of amazement at how four guys, a great producer and his engineers could make such a lasting piece of art.”
