On May 26th 2017, a deluxe box set of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was issued to commemorate the release of the iconic album in 1967. It comes in a slipcase with a parallax-3D version of the album cover on the front; inside is a reproduction EMI tape box, containing a reproduction of the original vinyl gatefold package (inside this are four CDs, a DVD and a Blu-Ray); reproductions of the "Sgt. Pepper Cut-Outs" which came with the original LP, of the antique circus poster which inspired "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!", and of a promotional poster used by record shops to advertise that they had the album in stock; and a hardback book (named after the album) covering all details of the making and impact of the album.

The DVD and Blu-Ray discs contain the entire album in hi-res audio (as the original 2.0 stereo mix, or as a new 5.1 mix by Sam Okell and Giles Martin). They also contain the 1992 documentary "The Making of Sgt. Pepper", and the original 1967 videos for "A Day in the Life", "Penny Lane" and "Strawberry Fields Forever" (all in 4:3 aspect ratio).
