Warner Music Group’s new vinyl-only record label, Run Out Groove, allows customers to vote on what goes up for pre-order out of their vault. As they state, the project is chosen by “majority vote will be made available to order for 30 days, after which the title will go on press.” The first project chosen was Echo & The Bunnymen’s It’s All Live Now, a live release recorded in Sweden. This is its first pressing and will be on 180-gram wax, while housed in a tip-on stoughton sleeve.
The choices for next month, include:
— The Old Mainstream: Golden Smog
Would be first pressing since 2010. “A lost classic from the 1990s that includes Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, Dan Murphy of Soul Asylum & Gary Louris of the Jayhawks.” 2xLP in gatefold jacket.
— Solomon Burke: The Best of Atlantic Soul
New collection, first vinyl collection of his Atlantic material since 1966. 1xLP on 180-gram vinyl.
— Secret Machines: Now Here Is Nowhere
First release on vinyl in the U.S. 2xLP 180-gram colored vinyl.
This is a cool program and we’ll keep you updated on when voting changes every month.
