Want more detail? See the retailer’s website, which has the full tracklistings for all the material in the box (there’s no point us copying it all here), as well as an option to pre-order it too. You can do that for £125. We can’t see it discounted on Amazon.co.uk or anywhere (not yet anyway), so it looks like going direct is the only way to get one.
You can order now, with the release date down as 23rd February 2014.
