Lorde released her stellar sophomore album, Melodrama, earlier this year, both on digital platforms and CD, but there was no vinyl in sight. Around the time of the release, Lorde took to Twitter to claim that a vinyl edition was on the way, and that it would see several editions. Now, she’s delivered on that promise.
Announced just this week, the vinyl edition of Melodrama will see both a standard release and a deluxe version. The standard will contain the album on black vinyl with a printed sleeve and double-sided photo page. The deluxe will contain the album on 180 gram blue vinyl, a hand-drawn sleeve, and six double-sided photos. Both versions are set to be released April 6 next year.
Lorde has also said that a vey nice collector’s edition will also see a release sometime next year, but no details have been given yet.
