So is released across two heavyweight 180g LPs, whilst Us and Up are released across three heavyweight 180g LPs, with music on fives sides and an etching on the sixth.
These limited edition releases are all individually numbered and include download cards with a choice of digital download (Hi-Res 24-bit or 16-bit).
“It has been heart warming to see the return of vinyl. Even though I loved being free of its limitations in the digital world, there is still a warmth and presence to vinyl that somehow makes it a more natural human companion. It is great to see a new generation learning the secrets of the grooves.” – Peter Gabriel
