It doesn't sound as if Kino Lorber led any remaster of this. If it is a new(er) remaster, it presumably would've been something the licensor would've tackled themselves. The response from Kino Lorber Insider:

LOST HIGHWAY

We acquired the rights last year. We did reach out to the filmmaker. And that's all we can say about it.

The transfer is a very good one, we watched it and it looks great. We're trying to clear three extras and hope to list the additional details next week.
...which doesn't really answer the question, but maybe that's because they don't actually know. Also, Kino Lorber reports that another label has Inland Empire, they tried and were unable to license The Straight Story, and the domestic rightsholder (Paramount?) for The Elephant Man wasn't willing to license it.

I don't trust Kino enough, so here's hoping that Eureka snags the UK edition - I'd import that in a second.

"The transfer is a very good one, we watched it and it looks great" doesn't really instill me with much confidence. I'm guessing they licensed it from MK2, which was the source of the European and Japanese Blu-rays. The transfer is not very good. It needs a new remaster pretty badly.

yeah. I have the Australian BD and it's... Really not good. If this hasn't actually been remastered, then it's a hard pass.

Interesting selection of releases. I might pick up The Silent Partner, though I own it already. The previous release had disgracefully hamfisted cover artwork.

I'm so happy to see Mumford finally get a Blu-ray release. This will be the movie's first BD anywhere in the world.
