To quote BoJack Horseman: Get ready to party like it’s 1982…the year Prince released 1999.

The late musician’s estate is digging into his massive vault once again, this time to issue a new deluxe edition of his breakthrough album. The five-CD set will feature remastered versions of the original album tracks, along with single edits, remixes, and B-sides, plus 35 previously unreleased cuts recorded between November 1981 and January 1983. On top of all that, the set will include two concerts from the album’s supporting tour, one audio-only and one on DVD. (Both are from 1982: the former, Nov. 30 in Detroit, and the latter, Dec. 29 in Houston.) And it will come with a book featuring liner notes, rare photos, and a smattering of Prince’s handwritten lyrics. It’s enough to render any fan utterly “Delirious.”

The new edition will also be available as a whopping 10-LP vinyl box set, and in a pared-down form as a 4-LP or 2-CD edition. The 1999 reissue will be out Nov. 29. Take a gander at the full tracklist below.
