Kraftwerk have brought their acclaimed 3D live show to countries far and wide over the last few years, including on their first full UK trek in over a decade. Awesomely enough, those performances have been captured and will be released as a live album and 3D concert film called 3-D The Catalogue.

Due out May 26th, the new collection features full album performances of eight Kraftwerk albums: Autobahn, Radioactivity, Trans Europe Express, The Man-Machine, Computer World, Techno Pop (previously released as Electric Cafe), Tour De France, and the 1991 remix compilation The Mix. The set will be available on various formats (DVD, vinyl, CD, digitally, and streaming platforms), as well as Blu-Ray, which comes accompanied with a 236-page book.
For those fans who perhaps want a more condensed experience, there will be two shortened versions of the release. Featuring just an assortment of tracks from those eight LPs, these versions will come out on Blu-Ray, DVD, and double-vinyl.
Watch a trailer for the release below, followed by video of Kraftwerk’s performance at the 2014 Summer Sonic Festival in Japan.
For those fans who perform seeing Kraftwerk’s 3D show in person, they’ll be touring the UK this June in addition to a residency in Antwerp, Belgium. See the full schedule below.
