Release of the first music album

Increasingly, artists are releasing “deluxe” versions of albums months after the original release, with extra tracks, remixes or alternative recordings of popular songs, giving the original recording increased longevity. These are often double albums, which are too long to fit on just one CD or vinyl. Taylor Swift’s re-recordings of her albums with extra tracks create hype with each new release. Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia: Moonlight Edition, a 19-track reissue of her 2020 album Future Nostalgia that added B-sides, prolonged the already massively successful release.
