Guns N' Roses has released a new, more epic version of "November Rain," featuring a 50-piece orchestra.
The reworked version of one of GNR's most ambitious songs was arranged and conducted by composer Christopher Lennertz. The track was mixed by famed producer and Porcupine Tree frontman Steven Wilson, who confirmed that the version will appear on the upcoming 30th anniversary reissue of Use Your Illusion, arriving November 11.
"The new 2022 version is the same performance as the original but with newly recorded orchestration replacing the sampled sounds used on the original mix," Wilson added.
