(hennemusic) The Band are streaming a 2020 alternate mix of their 1970 classic, "Sleeping", as the latest preview to the a series of expanded 50th anniversary reissue of their third studio album, "Stage Fright."

The track, which features Richard Manuel on lead vocals, is one of two alternate mixes of songs from the project, which delivered a number of classics by the group, including "The Shape I'm In" and the title track, on its way to reaching No. 5 on the US Billboard 200.

Due February 12, the 2021 reissue features a new stereo mix by Bob Clearmountain from the original masters and includes previously-unreleased live recordings from The Royal Albert Hall in London and an impromptu late night jam in a hotel room in the Canadian city of Calgary, Alberta.

The packages see The Band release "Stage Fright" in its originally planned song order for the first time. "There may be some purists that prefer 'the way it was,' and of course that's always readily available," shares Robbie Robertson in the liner notes. "I'm enjoying this new version, this story, this musical journey. It feels like a fulfillment and I know my brothers in The Band would definitely agree."

Formats include a Super Deluxe 2CD/Blu-ray/1LP/7-inch vinyl boxed set with book; 2CD, digital, 180-gram 2LP black vinyl, and limited 180-gram color vinyl. Stream the song here.
