Foo Fighters’ ‘Colour and the Shape’ Goes Deluxe

Foo Fighters’ 1997 sophomore gem The Colour and the Shape, home to standards like “Everlong,” “Monkey Wrench,” “My Hero,” and “Walking After You,” will undergo deluxe expansion treatment to honor the album’s 10th anniversary and arrive on store shelves July 10 via Legacy/RCA, reports. The special edition will feature — in addition to the 14 original tracks — covers of Killing Joke’s “Requiem,” Gary Numan’s “Down in the Park,” and Gerry Rafferty’s “Baker Street,” as well as B-sides “Drive Me Wild,” “Dear Lover,” and “The Colour and the Shape.”

Representing the band in its formative lineup, including Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear and former Sunny Day Real Estate drummer William Goldsmith, The Colour and the Shape remains the band’s most popular work to date.
