An updated version of Guns N’ Roses‘s classic hit, “November Rain,” has been released.

This 1991-released track will be included in the upcoming Use Your Illusion box set. The new rendition features a 50-piece orchestra, arranged and conducted by film and television composer Christopher Lennertz and was mixed by Steven Wilson. Wilson stated:

“The new 2022 version [of ‘November Rain’] 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.”

Obvious changes can be observed in the new version’s first notes. Lush sounds of piano and sweeping strings opened the song which delivered a more grand sound than the original rock track. Even though the song’s arrangement is just the same, the organic elements burst with life compared to the original synthesizer parts.

It was one of the most celebrated hits of the band. The new Use Your Illusion box set will be available on November 11. It will feature a total of 97 tracks, 63 are previously unreleased. Available in multiple configurations, including a Super Deluxe Seven-CD + Blu-ray, a Super Deluxe Twelve-LP + Blu-ray, Two-CD Deluxe Editions of Use Your Illusion I & II separately, standard 1CD and 2LP versions of Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II separately.
