Today, Pearl Jam announced a forthcoming reissue of its smash 1991 debut, “Ten,” to be released on March 24, 2009. The reissue will include the original recording, a remastered version of the album, remixes by producer Brendan O’Brien and demo versions of “Alive,” “Once” and “Footsteps” from a long-lost cassette called “Momma-Son.”


"The band loved the original mix of Ten, bu were also interested in what it would sound like if I were to deconstruct and remix it," said O’Brien, quoted in a related press release. "The original Ten sound is what millions of people bought, dug and loved, so I was initially hesitant to mess around with that. After years of persistent nudging from the band, I was able to wrap my head around the idea of offering it as a companion piece to the original – giving a fresh take on it, a more direct sound."


The deluxe versions of the band’s debut will be available in four packages, and are part of a planned 20th anniversary reissue series. Descriptions of the four packages available for pre-order through the band’s web site, taken from the press release:
