Sony Classical have set a March 26, 2012 release date for Titanic: Anniversary Edition and Titanic: Collector's Anniversary Edition soundtracks. They sent out these details:

The releases will coincide with the newly re-mastered re-release of Titanic in theaters on April 4, 2012. The theatrical re-release marks the 100th anniversary of the Titanic setting sail (April 10th).

In commemoration of these events, Sony Classical will release two newly remastered versions of the original Titanic soundtrack with extensive bonus material. Both feature an unreleased disc of period music recorded for the movie by I Salonisti, plus 4 bonus vintage Titanic luggage stickers. I Salonisti is the 5-piece quintet that appears in the film.

Two of the marquee songs on the disc I Salonisti: Gentlemen, It Has Been a Privilege Playing with You Tonight are "Nearer My God To Thee" which was the last song played by the band as the ship went down, and "Song of Autumn" which does not appear in the movie, but is rumored to be the actual song that the band played as the ship went down.

TITANIC: Collector's Anniversary Edition will include two additional discs featuring the remastered BACK TO TITANIC soundtrack and Popular Music From The Titanic Era, which is a new compilation of songs from the early 1900s.

Of the new releases, composer and conductor James Horner says, "I'm thrilled that Sony Classical is re-releasing the soundtrack album to TITANIC. It is wonderful to know that the original music has retained its magic through all of these years."
