The album will initially be available on double CD, double LP and digital formats and a limited and numbered Super Deluxe Edition will follow on 22 July. It compiles the original format’s double CD and double LP with a third CD which features Air’s remixes for artists including David Bowie, Beck, Depeche Mode and Neneh Cherry, as well as an exclusive collector’s poster.
