As Paul notes in his preview, "there is no sign of the surround sound version of the album which was issued on SACD back in 2003. Admittedly, this is a rare example of an SACD that is still relatively easy to get hold of, for not much outlay, but the package seems incomplete without it." Also: "The Demos, First Sessions EP and the Allaire Sessions have all been mixed to Dolby Atmos, although there appears to be no physical edition, so this will be for streaming-only."

An Atmos mix of the album proper has been available to stream for some time:
Here is the pre-release of the SDE:

Hey, I love this album as much as any person, but your think they'd release some new or modern, or at least another one of Jones' offerrings instead of the same surround album again for the 3 time in a row.

The original Blue Note UMG 5.1 SACD had issues with out of phase rear channels ..... in the interim, the AP 5.1 SACD corrected the issue and added 4 more Stereo SACD Norah Jones titles to a box set which included a bonus 6th SACD. But I definitely agree, Come Away With Me needs a rest and Blue Note/UMG should remix other Jones' albums into multi~CH SACD.

I agree with the general sentiment, and really, I'd rather they gave us good Atmos mixes of Cassandra Wilson's back catalogue, starting with Traveling Miles, before they do any more Norah Jones. But on the strength of the three tracks they've released so far (an alternate version of the title track and two demos/rejects: a cover of Ray Charles's "Hallelujah I Love Him So" and my favorite Fran Landesman song, "Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most"), I'm eager to hear the entire 3-disc anniversary edition of CAWM in Atmos, even if they won't do us the courtesy of putting it on a Blu-Ray. It sounds to me like Blue Note is finally understanding Atmos just a tad bit better.

Same room where (some of) the original was recorded.
