WARNER BROS. RECORDS AND AFFILIATED LABELS ANNOUNCE EXCLUSIVE RELEASES FOR RECORD STORE DAY’S “BLACK FRIDAY” CELEBRATION ON NOVEMBER 28TH

Warner Bros. Records has announced they will make a series of vinyl singles and albums available on November 28 in honor of Record Store Day’s “Black Friday” celebration. Originally, Black Friday was created by large corporate retailers to drive consumers to stores by promoting deals and discounted prices on mass-produced products. RSD’s Black Friday subverts this tradition by creating special limited-edition pieces, often numbered, from a diverse list of beloved artists. RSD’s version of Black Friday celebrates the pieces themselves and honors the special independent record stores that carry them.

Warner Bros. Records – a proud official sponsor of Record Store Day – will make available the following special releases:

 

Green Day: Tune In Tokyo; Transparent blue vinyl. Limited to 5,000

This limited-edition 2001 live recording from Japan is available worldwide for the first time ever on transparent blue vinyl.

 

Flaming Lips: “Imagene Peise – Atlas Eets Christmas“; Transparent red vinyl. Limited to 5,000

The Flaming Lips secret 2007 Christmas album, Atlast Eets Christmas was previously released in a very limited physical quantity on CD only under the pseudonym Imagene Peise (with a sticker that read “Love Is The Answer – Merry Christmas From The Flaming Lips 2007”). This Black Friday release will mark the first time the album is available both widely and on vinyl.

 

Mastodon: “The Motherload”; 12″ Picture disc. Limited to 5,000.
