The new set dives deep into the back catalog of the Can cofounder, who died last year.
Cinema will feature previously released material as well as unreleased tracks from Czukay—who died last September—including solo works and collaborations with fellow luminaries like Brian Eno, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Jah Wobble and Jaki Liebezeit (Czukay's Can bandmate who also passed away in 2017). Its 34 tracks will cover a nearly 50-year period of time.
The boxset will be available in five-disc editions for both CD and vinyl, with the latter packing a 7-inch "vinyl video" that contains the music video for the 1979 song "Cool In The Pool" and "a previously unreleased video of Holger introducing his first video recording [and] said video recording." Each edition will also include a booklet with unseen photos and an Ian Harrison-penned biography, along with a DVD of Krieg Der Töne (War Of The Sounds), a late-'80s experimental film Czukay scored and starred in.
Grönland will release the retrospective on March 23rd, roughly coinciding with what would have been Czukay's 80th birthday (on the 24th) and the 50-year anniversary of Can's formation.
