“2112” (pronounced "twenty-one twelve") is the fourth studio album by the Canadian rock band Rush. Released on 1 April 1976, it features the seven-part title suite composed by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson, with lyrics written by Neil Peart telling a dystopian story set in the year 2112. It is sometimes described as a concept album although the songs on the second side are unrelated to the suite. Rush repeated this arrangement on the 1978 album Hemispheres. “2112” is one of two Rush albums listed in the book “1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die”. According to its 40th anniversary, Mercury presents this deluxe edition containing rare live tracks, unreleased material and new interpretations by Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters) with Nick Raskulinecz, Billy Talent, Steven Wilson, Jacob Moon and Alice In Chains. You can also find a hologram etching on B-side and a slipmat.
