Matt Bellamy and co will celebrate 20 years since the release of their second studio album with the new XX Anniversary RemiXX edition.

Muse are set to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Origin Of Symmetry by releasing a new remixed version of the album.

Origin Of Symmetry: XX Anniversary RemiXX features remixed and remastered audio plus re-imagined artwork of the band's 2001 album, which includes their hits Plug In Baby and Feeling Good.

The album, which sees the band come together with GRAMMY-winning producer Rich Costey, will be released on digital formats on 18 June before two vinyl packages follow on 9 July.

Frontman Matt Bellamy said of the news: "In revisiting the album what we found was the original mixes on the singles, like ‘Plug In Baby’ and ‘Bliss’, were pretty good so they were the hardest ones to improve. It was the deeper album tracks like ‘Micro Cuts’ where we were able to make massive breakthroughs."

The XX Anniversary RemiXX also adds Futurism to the tracklist and is completed with a modernised reimagination of the album’s cover art, courtesy of Sujin Kim, who has created a hyper-realistic 3D version of the original cover image by William Eager.

Origin of Symmetry: XX Anniversary RemiXX is now available to pre-order and pre-save on digital formats here, with Citizen Erased provided as an instant download.
