Re: Exclusive Edition of the New Album Coming in the USA

Thank you.

I am happy that vinyl is coming out (both versions are now scheduled for December 9). Hoping it will include the CD as Old Ideas did - that makes it easier:)

Actually not, as all photos taken at the LA album launch event were taken one month later.
