The Replacements have decided to go back and rework their breakthrough record, Don’t Tell A Soul in the form of a new box set titled Dead Man’s Pop.
The 4xCD/1xLP box set will feature bonus cuts, previously unheard songs, a Tom Waits collaboration, and a classic concert from 1989. The box set will drop on September 27th, and the first 500 fans to order a copy online will also get a 14-track cassette that will have highlights from the box set in addition to two unreleased tracks, “Asking Me Lies,” and an instrumental rendition of “I Won’t (Bearsville Version).”
“The true spirit of The Replacements was always there on the recordings we did back in 1988, and now you can hear and feel it clearly,” producer Matt Wallace explains. “This was the project of a lifetime for me when we recorded it 30-plus years ago, and it’s even truer today as we’ve finally fulfilled our original vision.”
