Set will be released Nov 20
Matchbox Twenty has announced 20, a vinyl box set that will compile all five of the pop rockers’ studio albums across seven LPs. The sets are numbered in gold foil across the back and will be limited to 5,000 worldwide. It will be released on November 20 with the first 100 copies being signed by the band.
The box includes Yourself and Someone Like You, Mad Season, More Than You Think You Are and North. It also includes a re-imagined version of Exile On Mainstream, called Exile on Mainstream Revisited with 10 bonus and rare tracks. Mad Season, More Than You Think You Are, North, and Exile Revisited will make their vinyl debuts in the box.
The vinyl albums are packaged in a beautifully detailed 24 page 12”x12” booklet with exclusive band photographs, liner notes, and a career retrospective penned by Melinda Newman of Billboard.
Every pre-order includes a chance to win a signed booklet, a Zoom call, an outgoing personalized voicemail greeting from one of the band members, or a chance to win two tickets and a VIP experience to a concert stop on their 2021 trek with The Wallflowers.
Fans can also expect to see their music videos remastered in HD in the coming months.
