Cher’s ‘Believe’ Is Getting a Deluxe Edition for Its 25th Anniversary

The set is scheduled for a November release.

Cher‘s Believe is celebrating a major milestone. In honor of its 25th anniversary, the singer is releasing a deluxe edition of the album that will include 13 remastered remixes in triple LP, double CD and digital download formats, as well as streaming.

The deluxe version will contain all of the original songs, with remixes including the previously unreleased Tee’s Radio One Instrumental and Ray Roc’s Latin Soul Instrumental of single “Dov’e l’Amore” for the first time. The albums other singles — the title track, “Strong Enough” and “All or Nothing” — will also receive the remix treatment.

The vinyl version of the album will feature leopard-print packaging, and will contain sea blue, light blue and clear discs, in addition to a numbered lithograph of Cher. Following the news of Believe‘s deluxe release, a remastered HD version of Cher’s “Strong Enough” video was made available on YouTube.

Originally released in 1998, Believe served as Cher’s 22nd studio album. The set is one of her most successful to date, peaking at No. 4 on the all-genre Billboard 200 and spending a total of 76 weeks on the tally, the most out of her entire album catalog. Title track “Believe” is also Cher’s best performing song on the Billboard Hot 100, hitting No. 1 and spending a total of 31 weeks of the chart (four of them at the top). “Strong Enough” peaked at No. 57 on the Hot 100 and spent 12 weeks on the chart.

“Believe” received a Grammy nomination for record of the year, a first for Cher. The track won for best dance recording — Cher’s first Grammy win after nearly 35 years in the business.

Outside of its Billboard chart and Grammy success, Believe is also hailed for its use of a vocoder machine, producing what we now know as Auto-Tune. Known as the “Cher effect,” several musicians afterwards used it on their own recordings, such as T-Pain, Kanye West and more.
