Tina Turner's last album of the 1980s, Foreign Affair, will be revisited in a deluxe box set this summer.

The deluxe Foreign Affair, coming July 16, includes four CDs and a DVD featuring a new remaster of the album, a disc of B-sides and remixes (including a previously unreleased demo of "The Best," which you can hear below) and - for the first time on CD and DVD - the live concert film Do You Want Some Action? Live in Barcelona 1990.

While the 1989 album did not match the success of her comeback album Private Dancer (1984) or its follow-up Break Every Rule (1986) in America, Foreign Affair was one of her most successful works in Europe, topping the U.K. charts where her predecessors stopped at No. 2. "The Best," a Top 20 hit in the States, became a No. 5 smash in England (as well as a rugby anthem), while follow-up "I Don't Wanna Lose You" made it to No. 8 and "Steamy Windows" to No. 15.

The box set features a commemorative passport and art card, plus a 24-page booklet including new liner notes from songwriter Holly Knight, who co-wrote four of the album's songs including "The Best." A 2CD edition featuring just the album, B-sides and remixes will also be available, along with a double vinyl reissue of the original album (available on white vinyl at select retailers).
