Tom Petty: Hypnotic Eye blu-ray

petty_bluray

As previously reported, Tom Petty has a new album, Hypnotic Eye, out at the end of this month, and the pick of the formats for us is the blu-ray audio.

Petty’s website confirms that this high-resolution blu-ray audio disc contains stereo and Stereo and 5.1 Surround Mixes and includes the extra track Playing Dumb recorded during the album sessions. The blu-ray disc is region free and playable worldwide.

Availability is still a little hit and miss, but you can now pick this up via Amazon Germany, although Canada is still the best deal at less than £14 when converted from Canadian dollars. Update 27/7/14: Now widely available (see below).

Hypnotic Eye is out on 28 July 2014.

    Hi Paul, Will the Canadian Blu-ray play on UK machines?

    I think the question should be “will Amazon Canada ever actually deliver it?” :)

    If Ryan Ulyate happens to read this, I hope you and Tom will consider releasing another 5.1 Blu-ray of the older material. I’d love to pick up Full Moon Fever, Into the Great Wide Open, Southern Accents or Wallflowers…Damn The Torpedoes sounds so good and it’s a shame that’s the only back catalogue title to have received the 5.1 attention so far.

    Will definitely buy the new album to show support of the format.

    Looks like this is finally available to pre-order at amazon.co.uk, although they have done their best to disguise it as a CD:

    Currently listed on Amazon.co.uk as an ‘import’ for £15. Does anybody know if the ‘Torpedoes’ blu-audio disc is region-free?
