RSD 2017: Death Waltz unveils ‘Abdullah’ details

News / Preorders / April 17, 2017

Death Waltz will release a LP/DVD combo for short film, Abdullah, as part of Record Store Day 2017. They revealed the complete details today; the DVD will sit in the gatefold jacket, while the pressing will be on either red (limited to 500, UK) or blue (limited to 500, US).

It’s a dark tale concerning the largely unknown underbelly of the city. Abdullah is a lonely man, a Turkish mini-cab driver in London who has been forgotten – by the city, by society, and by his own community. When Abdullah picks up a new fare one night – a troubled young man who finally takes notice of him – things take a dark turn. As the two men make an undeniable connection, the question becomes clear: can Abdullah change his fate or is he destined to be swallowed by his own loneliness?

Record Store Day will be held on April 22. You can watch the film at IndieWire, who debuted it today.
