Outkast is celebrating their second album in a big way.
In honor of the 25th anniversary of their second album ATLiens, Outkast has announced a special vinyl reissue for it.

According to a press release, there will be three different vinyl releases, including ones from Vinyl Me, Please, and Get On Down. The former will be on 2LP Neon Green and Blue Galaxy vinyl, while the latter will be a 4LP set on standard black vinyl that includes the original vocal album and the full-length instrumental album, as well as a glow in the dark 7″ of “Elevators” b/w “ATLiens.”



The Vinyl, Me Please release is available to VMP members, while the Get On Down release can be pre-ordered here.

Okayplayer’s Okayshop also has the anniversary vinyl reissue available to purchase here.

Originally released back on August 27, 1996, ATLiens debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200 chart, and spawned singles “Elevators (Me & You),” “ATLiens,” and “Jazzy Belle.”

In related news, Andre 3000 just added another role to his acting resume. 3000 has joined the cast of a forthcoming A24 film titled Showing Up, which will be about “a vibrant and sharply funny portrait of an artist on the verge of a career-changing exhibition. As she navigates family, friends and colleagues in the lead-up to her show, the chaos of life becomes the inspiration for great art.”

Aside from the 3000, the cast also includes Hong Chau, Judd Hirsch, Maryann Plunkett, John Magaro, Heather Lawless, Amanda Plummer, Larry Fessenden, James Le Gros, and Michelle William. The film is written by Kelly Reichardt.

And ATLiens is my favorite OutKast album.
Eh, maybe not pass. I'm just disappointed by this release.
You telling me there weren't any unreleased joints that didn't make the album? Alternate versions?

* Benz or Beamer <New Jersey Drive sdtk>
* Elevators (Me & You) (Crazy "C" Trunk Rattlin' Mix)
* ATLiens (Bad Boy Remix)
* Jazzy Belle (Swift C's Remix)
* Jazzy Belle (Uncensored Album Version)
* Everlasting <Nothing to Lose sdtk>
* In Due Time <Soul Food sdtk>

And that's bare minimum. I'm sure there's shit in the vaults we don't know about.

This anniversary would have been a great opportunity to bring attention back to this landmark album.

I've heard/read that Andre (like Stevie Wonder) doesn't like revisiting or showcasing unfinished material.
And I understand that. Still disappointed in this release though.

I might cop to have it on vinyl but just can't figure why they didn't throw any unreleased shit on here, or even just remixes already released.

Also, lots of reissues coming out right now and it's hard to get excited about all of them if they don't have something special on the table. The DYSM release is done right, imo - hoping to grab that before it runs out

Some have been okay but they usually disappoint. There is hope that they will use the same plates as VMP since VMP has their own version but that is not confirmed. The VMP one is only the standard album on colored vinyl.

The main reason I think VMP might have their own plates is since they are advertising it as mastered at half speed. It could just be that there's an agreement to only let VMP advertise that on their own release even though it would be the same plates for all the releases.

I have never had a VMP pressing I didn't enjoy. I know some have been no better than other releases but they have always been good.

The only reason I'm tempted to get the Get on Down one is for the packaging. Gatefold with the printed inner sleeves would be nice. The 7" is a nice bonus.

I would guess that the quality on this one will be good and the same from all the sellers. Probably the same packaging too. VMP has a small chance of sounding different and will probably only be a standard jacket with their stamp. If I didn't already have a subscription for VMP I might roll the dice on the Get on Down one, a rare exemption.

But nothing for this. Having music in "the vault" is useless.
