Just when I thought Third Man Records couldn’t outdo themselves, they come out of nowhere and slap us in the face with this: THEY’RE RELEASING A LIMITED METALLIZED GOLD AND PLATINUM VINYL VERSION OF THE GREAT GATSBY SOUNDTRACK. Yes, it warranted all caps and yes, let that sink in for a second.
Oh, I almost forgot… to top it off, they’re going to be housed in a LASER CUT WOODEN LP JACKET.
We’ve known for a while that TMR was pressing the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann’s film, The Great Gatsby. Once we heard of the lineup of artists that were going to be featured on this release (Jack White, Jay Z, Lana Del Rey, The XX), we knew it was going to be BIG…we just didn’t know how big.
These are up for preorder now at Third Man Records. These are going to be extremely limited (no pressing count however) and set you back a whopping $250 dollars. I mean, c’mon…you’re not going to say no to that right? Plus, with how low the price of gold has been trending lately, the value of these is sure to go up…am I right?
Let us know if you were able to pre order it…we may ask you to borrow some money so we can snag a copy for ourselves 😉
