The Roots are reissuing a trio of albums from the 1990s: 1994’s Do You Want More?!!!??!, 1996’s Illadelph Halflife, and 1999’s Things Fall Apart. First up is the Things Fall Apart reissue, which is available September 27 via Geffen/UMe/Urban Legends. The deluxe edition will include a remastered version of the record, bonus tracks, rare photos, essays from Black Thought and Questlove, and liner notes from Questlove.
In a statement, the Roots said, “We’re looking forward to going back to the vault to revisit our original recordings from the studio and we’re excited to celebrate these albums by really delivering something special for our fans.”
The Do You Want More?!!!??! reissue is set to come out in 2020. Illadelph Halflife will then be reissued in 2021.
The Roots’ last studio LP was 2014’s …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin. Read “Questlove on Why Music Festivals Matter and How to Do Them Right” over on the Pitch.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the Roots’ new reissue is for the 25th anniversary of Things Fall Apart. It is for the album’s 20th anniversary.
