Marillion Eden

Marillion fans are about to get a Holiday upgrade!

Deluxe editions of Holidays In Eden will be released in both 3-CD/Blu-ray and 4-LP box set on September 16, 2022. Both sets include a brand-new 2022 remixed stereo version of the album by Stephen Taylor and a full live show from Hammersmith, London, from 1991. The concert includes a number of tracks from Holidays In Eden, alongside song favorites from previous albums such as “Berlin,” “Incommunicado” and others.  

The Blu-ray deluxe edition features a brand-new 2022 stereo remix in 96/24 Stereo LPCM, DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and 96/24 5.1 LPCM. As well as B-sides and bonus tracks, such as “The Moles Club” demos recorded after the band’s long writing process for the album. It also includes tons of video content, including a brand-new documentary of the band telling the album’s story, HD upgraded promo videos and a live concert from Rockpalast In Concert on German TV. 

Originally released in 1991, Holidays In Eden was Marillion’s sixth studio album and second with Steve Hogarth on lead vocals. Their previous album and first with Hogarth, Season’s End, was written quickly, leaning on a large amount of material already written prior to Hogarth’s arrival. Holidays In Eden brought about a different challenge to the band’s new lineup, which they explored extensively within the book and documentary in the 3-CD/Blu-ray deluxe edition. The band faced their greatest commercial pressure yet from EMI, who wanted a couple of radio-friendly singles. It set the path for pop-friendly Chris Neil to produce the album, who still desired, along with the band, for the rest of the album to be quintessentially Marillion. 

Holidays In Eden proved to be a fan favorite, with tracks such as “The Party” and “This Town” accompanying singles like “No-One Can” and “Dry Land.” The essay and band interviews by Rich Wilson included in the book, alongside the documentary Pain And Heaven on Blu-ray, provide insight into the different writing processes, the dynamics between the band and producer Chris Neil, and Marillion’s navigation of record label commercial pressures to produce such an album.
