Guns N’ Roses release new version of November Rain

From Loudersound.

Guns N’ Roses‘ iconic November Rain remains one of rock ‘n’ roll’s most lauded and beloved power ballads, and now, thirty years after its release as a single, it’s been reissued with a brand new makeover, courtesy of Porcupine Tree mainman and production wizard Steven Wilson and a 50-piece orchestra, who recorded new parts for the legendary song conducted and arranged by Grammy Award-winning and Emmy-nominated composer, Christopher Lennertz.

The upgraded version of November Rain is taken from the epic, upcoming Use Your Illusion 1&2 box sets, which arrive on November 11 via UMG, celebrating the albums’ 30th anniversaries, which occurred last year.

Speaking on the new version of November Rain in September, Steven Wilson noted: “My mix of a fully orchestrated version of the Guns N’ Roses’ evergreen November Rain appears on the just announced 30th anniversary reissue of Use Your Illusion. The new 2022 version is the same performance as the original, and mixed faithfully to the established version, but with newly recorded orchestration replacing the sampled sounds used at the time.”
