Re: Finaero's comment "Quite the Division Bell-like cover art there."
Quite true! Something majestic about the statues of the watchers, Easter Island-like, just like those of The Division Bell, especially the "stone" version used for the cover on cassette.
Too bad the …quinoxe Infinity image is mere CGI with 3 copies of the same statue. Photoshop / CGI are cool, but designers often go the lazy way with the the easy copy / paste. It's photo-realistic but ultimately looks fake. The Division Bell statues were real objects (albeit in fiber glass, not metal / stone) and photographed for real in a field. That makes the pictures better.
It should be interesting to see both variants of the cover. And listen to the new music, of course!

Tracklist is available for the box-set at amazon.de.
As I predicted, disc 1 is Equinoxe 1978, disc 2 is Equinoxe 1978, disc 3 is Equinoxe Infinity, disc 4 is Equinoxe Infinity. Discs 2 and 4 are likely vinyl (I don't think they will be cassettes this time)
I thought the same. The first cover didn't make me think of "man living in harmony with nature" as the PR blurb mentioned, it made me think about nature *after* mankind. With remnants of "civilization" in the form of those statues (provided they were not made by extraterrestrials
