After spending much of the week fueling speculation about their plans for an expanded 50th anniversary edition of their 1967 masterpiece Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, the Beatles have officially announced all the details.

The biggest surprise is that the big rumor surrounding the reissue -- that "Strawberry Fields Forever" and "Penny Lane," two songs recorded at the start of the album sessions but released months before the LP and not included in its track listing, would be reinstated in the running order -- turns out to be false. The songs are not included in the album's original 13-song lineup. But they do show up in various forms on the additional discs.

There are several configurations available on the upcoming release, which is due May 26, including a two-CD Deluxe edition, a Deluxe vinyl version and, most impressively, a four-CD/DVD/Blu-ray Super Deluxe boxed set.

The first disc includes a new stereo mix of the original LP by Giles Martin, son of the Beatles' late producer George Martin. The other discs include "complete early takes from the sessions, sequenced in chronological order of their first recording dates," a disc of rare mono mixes and a DVD and Blu-ray with video content, including a previously unreleased 1992 movie, The Making of Sgt. Pepper.

You can see the track listing for the Super Deluxe Edition below.

In addition to 5.1 surround audio, the box also features special packaging, including a 144-page hardcover book loaded with photos, recollections and more from the recording of the album. In total, the set spotlights 33 previously unreleased recordings from the sessions (but the fabled "Carnival of Light," the holy grail of lost Beatles recordings, isn't one of them).

The two-disc version whittles the box down to one CD of the original album in its new mix and a CD with 18 songs from the sessions, like the first take of "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds," an instrumental version of "She's Leaving Home" and a run-through of "Lovely Rita" with a speech.
