Reba McEntire Revisits Her Past For ‘Revived Remixed Revisited’ Box Set
The set sees McEntire making time ‘to revisit and work the catalog and remind people of what we’ve done in the past.’
Reba McEntire has announced the October 8 release of the three-part box set Revived Remixed Revisited. The themed collection sees the country superstar presenting new takes on some of the most-loved songs in her stellar career.
Revived features some of McEntire’s biggest hits as they have evolved in her ever-popular live shows, recorded with her touring band. These include all-new arrangements of such favorites among her legions of fans as “Is There Life Out There” and “Can’t Even Get The Blues.”
The Remixed set, meanwhile, casts a new light on such songs as “Little Rock” and “I’m A Survivor,” and Revisited has Reba working with Grammy-winning producer Dave Cobb to strip back and recut songs such as “Somebody Should Leave” and “Consider Me Gone.” It also features Reba teaming with fellow country royalty Dolly Parton on “Does He Love You,” which became a No.1 single in 1993 for Reba and Linda Davis.
To celebrate the box set announcement, one song from each of the new collections has been released on all digital channels: “Is There Life Out There” from Revived, “I’m A Survivor” (Lafemmebear Remix) from Remixed, and “Consider Me Gone” from Revisited.
“I’ve been continuing to make new albums,” says McEntire in an exclusive interview with Variety, “and we really haven’t spent the time to slow down enough to revisit and work the catalog and remind people of what we’ve done in the past. I’m really a forward thinker, so that was a little out of my realm [but] I think it’s very important to keep the songs of mine that my fans grew up on [alive].
“My fans are very loyal, very sweet to me,” she continues, “and I think they’re going to enjoy this three-album package where they can sit down and say, ‘Oh, I remember when Reba sang that in Omaha.’”
At 7 pm ET/6 pm CT on August 23, McEntire will join TV personality Nancy O’Dell Aug. 23 for talkshoplive, on which fans can pre-order autographed editions of the box set and hear stories around its making. Meanwhile, the final set of dates for the Reba, Brooks & Dunn residency in Las Vegas have been announced for December 1-15 at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
