Warner Bros. Records Announces Vinyl Releases for Record Store Day
On April 18, vinyl enthusiasts across the world will celebrate Record Store Day. With the official list of releases still to be announced (trust us, it’s coming very, very soon), Warner Bros. Records has already unveiled a handful of their special exclusives.
Ben Lee, ‘Big Love’ — 7” Single
Limited to just 3,000 copies, this marks Ben Lee’s debut release with Warner Bros. and includes a brand-new track from his upcoming record, Love Is the Great Rebellion (set for release in June). “Big Love” will be backed with “Follow That Feeling,” an exclusive non-album track.
Big Data, ‘Dangerous’ — 7” Single
Backed with the “Oliver Remix” of the smash hit “Dangerous,” this 7” is inspired by old-school floppy discs and is limited to 2,000 copies. Big Data’s debut album, 2.0, hits stores March 24.
Built to Spill, ‘Untethered Moon’ — 12” Album
As if the release of Built to Spill’s first new record since 2009 isn’t enough to get excited about, they’re pressing a very limited number of Untethered Moon on transparent blue vinyl. How limited? 500 copies — the rest will be on black. Those transparent blue pressings will be randomly inserted throughout record stores, so everybody has a fair shot at snagging one. This album is officially released on April 21, but vinyl fans can pick it up a few days earlier on Record Store Day.
The Flaming Lips, ‘Cloud Taste Metallic’-era EPs — 10” EPs
Believe it or not, but 2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the Flaming Lips’ Clouds Taste Metallic. It’s no surprise that the Lips love Record Store Day and to help celebrate this milestone, they’re offering a limited series of three 10” EPs from the album’s recording sessions. Each disc is a different color and contains tracks that were previously only available on CDs that were released overseas. Bad Days is on white, green and yellow mixed vinyl, This Here Giraffe is on clear and solid orange mixed vinyl and Brainville is on solid yellow vinyl.
