The twentieth anniversary edition of Empire is slated to hit stores on September 14. The re-release will include a remastered version of the original album, along with 13 bonus tracks, most of which are previously unreleased cuts. The album will be released digitally and as part of a two CD special edition set.
Some of the new tracks are taken from a live performance the group did in London just after the album originally came out.
Empire spawned six hit singles, most notably the power ballad “Silent Lucidity,” which broke the top 10 on Billboard‘s Hot 100. Empire was also re-released in 2003 with three bonus tracks, which are also found on this collection.
