GUNS N' ROSES Streams 2022 Version Of "November Rain"

Remixed by Steven Wilson and featuring a 50-piece orchestra.


Guns N' Roses is now streaming the 2022 version of their classic "November Rain." The new version was mixed by Porcupine Tree frontman and studio wizard Steven Wilson, and brings with it a massive 50-piece orchestra conducted and arranged by Christopher Lennertz. To the song's credit, it does sound way bigger than the original with some extra flourishes and minor melodies, though I can definitely see how people would enjoy the original version more with an "if it ain't broke don't fix it"-type of mentality.

Guns N' Roses will release a massive Use Your Illusion I & II box set on November 11. The box set includes the above version of "November Rain," a New York show at the Ritz Theatre recorded in 1991, and a Las Vegas show at the Thomas & Mack Center recorded in 1992. The New York show features two songs with then-Blind Melon vocalist Shannon Hoon on vocals, while the Las Vegas show offers a handful of interesting covers. Both Use Your Illusion I & II were remastered for the releases, as were the live shows.

The box set runs as follows. Pre-orders are available here with just your regular CD and vinyl editions available alongside the super expansive box sets.
