John Lennon would have turned 80 years old this year – an occasion that will be marked with a new box set of the ex-Beatle’s solo material.

Gimme Some Truth: The Ultimate Mixes includes 36 Lennon tracks hand-picked by Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon, on two CDs or four LPs.

Each song has been “remixed from scratch, radically upgrading their sonic quality”.

Also included are a 124-page book and a Blu-ray disc with high-definition audio tracks.

Gimme Some Truth: The Ultimate Mixes will be out October 9th.
