UPDATED – February 22, 2019
Record Collection, the label that released The Empyrean originally, has finally released information about the re-release of the vinyl.
As suspected, it is indeed a 10 year anniversary re-release. Recut by John Frusciante and Bernie Grundman from the original analog tapes. The double disc LP includes a download card of the album plus bonus tracks in high resolution.
Preorders will ship in the week of March 25th, the official release date is March 29.
Preorder via Record Collection here.
It looks like the rumors are true! John Frusciante’s record ‘The Empyrean’ gets a vinyl re-release! Multiple online stores have the 180g LP up for pre-order with a release date set for March 14 or 15, 2019.
Although I recommend preordering via Record Collection (safest way to go, since they are re-releasing it) you can also pre-order the LP at any of the shops listed below.
