Guns ‘N’ Roses recently released a new version of their superhit song “November Rain” featuring a 50-piece orchestra.
Noted film and television composer Christopher Lennertz arranged and conducted the new version, remixed by Porcupine Tree frontman Steven Wilson.
“My mix of a fully orchestrated version of the @gunsnroses evergreen November Rain appears on the just announced 30th anniversary reissue of Use Your Illusion,” Wilson said in September. “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.”
The song originally appeared on the band’s third studio album Use Your Illusion I, which came out in 1991. The group subsequently released it as a single the following year, and it peaked at No. 4 in the U.K. and sold more than 600,000 copies, achieving Platinum status.
The new remix of “November Rain” features on the Use Your Illusion I & II boxset, which is set to arrive on Friday (November 11).
