T-Bone Burnett Debuts New HD Audio Format – CODE – On New Mellencamp Release
CODE, a new high-definition audio format developed by T-Bone Burnett and a team of audio engineers, will make its commercial debut on John Mellencamp’s upcoming album, “Life, Death, Love and Freedom.”
T Bone Burnett, who also produced the Mellencamp album, claims that the CODE technology creates high-definition audio files that are virtually indistinguishable from the original masters.
To address possible compatibility issues, “Life, Death, Love and Freedom” due July 15 via Hear Music, will be packaged as a two-disc set, with the standard edition of the album on CD and the CODE version of the album on DVD. The set will be priced as if it were a single-disc package. “Life” will be available at Starbucks locations in the U.S. and Canada as well as at traditional retail outlets.
