    Has it really been 30 years? Yeah, it has.

    Music icon Cyndi Lauper will celebrate the anniversary of her groundbreaking, record-setting debut album with She's So Unusual: A 30th Anniversary Celebration, which will be released through Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, on April 1, 2014.

    The two-CD deluxe edition will feature the original album, rare demos, live concert recording as well as remixes by some of today's hottest DJs and producers including Nervo, Bent Collective and Yolanda Be Cool.

    The collection will also be made available as a solo CD (original remastered album and three new remixes) as well as a 1-LP vinyl (includes an insert for download of three new remixes).

    Very, very, very cool!

    In addition to rare and never-before-heard recordings, the physical deluxe edition includes an unusual surprise. The collection includes a reusable sticker set, including vinyl cut outs of Lauper's cutting-edge outfits and accessories that can be arranged in different combinations on a 3D fold-out backdrop of the bedroom featured in her iconic "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" music video. Journalist and author Jancee Dunn, who worked with Lauper on her 2012 New York Times Best Selling autobiography, authored the detailed liner notes.

    "I'm always looking forward, trying to do something that's new and different," said Lauper. "But every once in a while it's good to look back and celebrate. I've always been proud of this album, with the statement we made and, most importantly, what it has meant to my fans, I want to thank them for all the years of support."
