Pink Floyd Announce Vinyl Catalog Reissue Campaign
Pink Floyd's entire catalog is returning to vinyl for the first time in decades.
Starting June 3, the group plans to roll out a comprehensive reissue campaign via its catalog distribution imprint, Pink Floyd Records. It's set to begin with The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, A Saucerful of Secrets, the More soundtrack and Ummagumma. According to a press release, more reissues will follow throughout the year, with release dates to be announced "at regular intervals."
Pink Floyd Records' distribution deals will see the new LPs issued through Warner Music in the U.K. and Europe and Sony Music's Columbia imprint in North America and the rest of the world. "We're proud to continue to support one of the world's greatest and most influential bands," enthused Warner chairman Max Lousada. "This is an exciting new chapter in our long-standing partnership with Pink Floyd and we look forward to working with them to help curate their remarkable body of work."
"We are proud to continue the long standing relationship in North America and beyond between Columbia Records and Pink Floyd," added Columbia chief Howard Stringer. "We are excited to work together with the band on their incredible musical legacy."
Promising "special care" with the new reissues of the band's classic releases, the reissue announcement notes that the albums' original packaging will be replicated and adds that each title will be pressed on 180g vinyl. CD, digital and streaming editions of Pink Floyd's albums are unaffected by the campaign and will remain available through their current platforms.
