The Stone Temple Pilots album with the extremely long name has become even longer. To celebrate the iconic grunge record’s 25th anniversary, the band is releasing a special box set titled, Tiny Music…Songs From The Vatican Gift Shop: Super Deluxe Edition.

In addition to a remastered version of the 1996 classic that spawned hits like “Big Bang Baby” and “Lady Picture Show”, the package comes with two discs full of unreleased material. One features demos, instrumentals, and unreleased takes of almost every song on Tiny Music, as well as a never-before-heard track called “Kretz’s Acoustic Song”.

The third disc is a 14-track live album from a 1997 set at Club La Vela in Florida’s Panama City Beach. The recordings have never been released until now, and the performance features songs from Tiny Music as well as songs from their early records, Purple and Core.

Interestingly, the box set is mixed medium combination of both CD and vinyl formats. The remastered version of the record comes on black vinyl and CD, while the other two albums worth of material are only in CD form. However, for those who really want the absolute fullest package, there’s also a “Big Bang Baby” seven-inch that’s only available via pre-order and limited to 1000 units.

The whole thing is available now on the band’s website, and you better act fast if you want to snag that bonus seven-inch.

While you’re listening to this new version of “Big Bang Baby”, read Consequence of Sound’s recent retrospective review of the album, in which writer Bryan Rolli calls it “a thrilling, genre-hopping opus.”
