    Not one, not two, not three, not four but five. FIVE FORMATS! That's how many formats in which Tears for Fears' breakthrough album Songs From the Big Chair is being reissued.

    We know, we sound like LeBron James when he first went to Miami and declared tons of championships for his new team and new city. And to think now he is back in Cleveland after bouncing.

    Okay, so back to the music of the '80s…

    Tears for Fears' biggest-selling album, Songs from the Big Chair, will be released in its most spectacular format on November 11, 2014, via Universal Music Enterprises.

    The album, which spawned classic songs like "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," "Shout" and "Head Over Heels," will be available in five formats, including a six-disc deluxe edition box set featuring previously unreleased material and in a first for a pop album, a 5.1 surround sound mix by Steven Wilson.

    Children of the '80s, rejoice! Shout, shout, let it all out.

    Now available in five rebooted, extended formats, this is the most comprehensive reissue of Songs From the Big Chair. The six-disc, deluxe edition box set features a multitude of remixes and B-sides, plus a disc of nine previously unreleased tracks and a 5.1 surround sound version of the album mixed by renowned musician and audio engineer Steven Wilson.

    Album Formats:

    6-Disc Super Deluxe Edition Box Set: 4-CDs & 2-DVDs with 30-page replica tour program and a 32-page booklet

    2-CD Deluxe Edition

    1-CD Remaster

    1-LP: 180-gram vinyl

    Pure Audio Blu-ray Edition

    In even better news, Tears for Fears are currently in the studio working on their first album in nearly a decade, with a release tentatively slated for 2015.

    Huzzah! Screaming, shaking and crying. That's what we're doing over here.

    What format are you nabbing for the TFF fan in your life, '80s kids?
