LISTEN: Tool release reimagined version of “Opiate”

The reimagined version has been extended to 9 minutes and 54 seconds.

To mark the 30th anniversary of the release of their debut EP, Tool have released a "reimagined" version of their 1992 single "Opiate."

The reimagined version, dubbed "Opiate², has been extended to 9 minutes and 54 seconds, and has a more progressive, psychedelic vibe to match their most recent material.

Tool have been performing a really similar version of the revamped tracked since 2016, so a lot of fans will already be familiar with it.

Opiate² is out now on all digital platforms, and will be released on Blu-Ray on March 18th.

This Blu-Ry release will include a 10-plus-minute short film created by visual artist Dominic Hailstone and guitarist Adam Jones (who have both previously collaborated on visual elements for Tool concerts), plus interviews and a behind-the-scenes art book.

The track was released this morning (March 2) and fans are already loving it.

Have a hoon of the tune up top, and you can pre-order the Blu-Ray via Amazon.
