It’s limited to 1,000 copies.
Then, beginning in 2023, a campaign of individual album reissues launches, starting with Seventh Dream of Teenage Heaven and Express on January 13, Earth, Sun, Moon and Love and Rockets on April 28, and on June 9, Hot Trip to Heaven and Sweet F.A. will be released. Plus some more Love and Rockets releases will be announced in early 2023.
