A black vinyl in addition to a limited edition will follow on November 16th. Idol’s Revitalized collection features 11 brand-new remixes of his most classic hits. Lending their hands to Revitalized are Moby, Paul Oakenfold and The Crystal Method as well as Tropkillaz, Shiba San, Juan Maclean, CRAY and RAC, who’s remix of ‘Dancing With Myself’ debuted last week. Vital Idol was released back in 1985, and was the first remix record released by a rock star.
