The Replacements will release a new box set titled Dead Man’s Pop. Due out September 27th, the four-disc collection compiles all the rough mixes and alternate takes that comprise their cruelly underrated sixth studio album, 1989’s Don’t Tell a Soul.

Produced by Matt Wallace and mixed by Chris Lod-Alge, the first disc features Wallace’s mixes, while the second disc features all the recordings that took place in 1988 with producer Tony Berg at Bearsville Studio in Upstate New York. The last two discs, however, include a live recording of the band’s June 2, 1989 show at University of Wisconsin.

News of the release follows a series of teases by the band. On Wednesday, they shared a photo of Ampex reels, and today, they dropped Don’t Tell a Soul-era portraits of Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson, all pointing to a July 23rd announcement.

Said announcement was ultimately botched by an Amazon UK listing that BrooklynVegan discovered. Whether or not there’s more behind the release — perhaps some shows? (eh, probably not) — we’ll have to see come July 23rd.

In the meantime, consult the tracklist below and revisit Don’t Tell a Soul after.
