- The Go-Go's iconic Beauty and the Beat (1981) will be expanded in May by EMI, reports the band's official site. The band, which recently announced a summer tour to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the chart-topping album (which featured Top 20 single "Our Lips Are Sealed" and No. 2 hit "We Got the Beat"), will see several versions of the album, including a hot-pink vinyl edition and a double-disc set on CD featuring a vintage live set.
- Loudon Wainwright III's 40 Odd Years box set is due from Shout! Factory in May - and he's not the only member of his musical family with such a set forthcoming. His son Rufus, an accomplished singer-songwriter in his own right, reports from his official site that he "has spent the last few months trawling through various archives and listening to some cracking outtakes and demos" for a box set to be released later this year.
- And one last piece of box set news: La-La Land's long-promised box of music from The X-Files now has a release date. A post on the label's Facebook page reads: "May 10th, 2011 1pm PST - The Music is Out There (finally)."
