5LP Sister Release to 2016's Sold-Out The Studio Collection Box includes 4 Additional Albums (Songs From The Labyrinth, If On A Winter's Night..., Symphonicities & 57th & 9th) Not Featured in Original Set with Placeholder for All LPs!
For fans who bought 2016's sold-out The Studio Collection box set, a 5LP sister release The Studio Collection: Volume II will include the four albums that didn't feature in the original box (Songs From The Labyrinth, If On A Winter's Night..., Symphonicities and 57th & 9th), with space to add every record from The Studio Collection. All of the included LPs appear in exact replicas of the original artwork presented in an exceptional slipcase package, with brand new vinyl masters cut at the legendary Abbey Road studios to ensure exceptional audio quality.
From the exploration of complex classical forms in 2006's Songs From The Labyrinth, expanding in magnitude and concept on 2009's If On A Winter's Night..., and further developing into the genre-melding orchestral expanse of 2010's Symphonicities before finally culminating in the triumphant return to pop/rock on 2016's 57th & 9th.
"I loved the first box set. I thought it was beautifully put together and packaged and everything," Sting says, though he admits to being "kind of disappointed" that it only told part of his story. "There were a couple of albums that I really like that weren't included. I could see the logic behind it, because these albums were slightly left of field, if you like. I thought they were worthy of being included. So you can have the complete studio collection all in one place."
