As announced previously
, the new Sonic Youth
double LP/CD/digital album, ‘The Eternal’ is coming out on June 9 (link to original album announcement) . However, the album will be available to those taking part in Matador’s Buy Early Get Now
campaign on April 28.
Along with your preorder of ‘The Eternal’ on LP or CD, you’ll get an instant stream of the album, and later (through the auspices of the U.S. Postal Service) a bonus limited edition live LP* culled from Sonic Youth’s July 4, 2008 show
in Battery Park, NYC, along with an exclusive poster. Additional MP3’s will follow (but not from the post office).
As with prior Buy Early Get Now campaigns, the album can be preordered from a trusted local retailer or directly from Matador starting April 28.
Though the full list of participating record stores will be available on April 28, if you’re interested in being involved, please contact Mike Venutolo at Matador Direct (email@example.com)
A separate but equally thrilling variation on Buy Early Get Now for our friends in the United Kingdom and other territories will be announced in this space shortly.
