Lucius + ‘Breaking Bad’ Announce Limited-Edition Vinyl Releases
As vinyl fanatics gear up for the revered holiday known as Record Store Day Black Friday, there will be a handful of special releases hitting store shelves a few days early on Nov. 24.
The first noteworthy release comes to us courtesy of Brooklyn's Lucius. A little over a year ago, the indie pop outfit unveiled their debut full-length album, 'Wildewoman,' to critical acclaim. An amazing feat for any indie act, the record broke through the Billboard 200 chart and peaked at an impressive No. 150. And now, the band will share the deluxe vinyl edition of 'Wildewoman,' packaged in a foil covered jacket, featuring six songs not on the original release. The double-LP is pressed on white wax and will be hand-numbered (it's limited to a mere 1,000 copies).
And for fans of the amazing television series 'Breaking Bad,' there will be a very, very cool record waiting for you at your local indie shop. 'Breaking Bad: Original Score Vol. 2' will feature previously unreleased music by Dave Porter, the man behind the eerily beautiful sounds found throughout the show. This record serves as a companion of sorts to 2012's 'Original Score Vol. 1.' Most excitingly, though, is the fact that while the bulk of the copies you'll find are on black vinyl, there will be a very limited run that finds the discs on green wax. How limited? Just 150 copies.
Also worth noting is the vinyl release of the New Basement Tapes' 'Lost On the River.' The CD and digital formats have been out to the masses since Nov. 10, but on Nov. 24, fans will be able to pick it up on 180-gram wax in a double-LP edition.
And if you're like us and are ready to put together your Black Friday wishlist, make sure you take a gander at all of the official Record Store Day releases here.
