Animals is the tenth studio album by Pink Floyd, originally released in January 1977. It was recorded at the band’s Britannia Row Studios in London throughout 1976 and early 1977, and was produced by the band themselves. The album and its title take inspiration from George Orwell’s Animal Farm, likening the socio-economic landscape of the time to the class divide present in the novel – a comparison that still resonates with deafening relevancy in the current climate.
Animals 2018 Remix will be released on CD, LP (with gatefold artwork), Blu-ray, Digital and Deluxe Gatefold formats. The Deluxe Gatefold version includes LP, CD, audio Blu-ray, audio DVD and a 32-page book. The Blu-ray and DVD audio include the 2018 remix in Stereo, 5.1 Surround (both by James Guthrie) and the original 1977 Stereo mix. This is the first time the album will have been available in 5.1 Surround Sound. The 32-page booklet features rarely seen behind the scenes photographs of the album sleeve shoot along with live images and memorabilia. The album artwork has been reimagined for this release.
