Exclusive Edition of the New Album Coming in the USA

Postby bigdee » Sun Oct 16, 2016 5:41 am

So I went down to my local Barnes and Noble shop in the USA today to pre-order the new album and the clerk in the shop asks "Do you want the regular version or the Barnes and Noble Exclusive version?". Needless to say I was a bit puzzled by the question since I am a regular lurker here in the forum and had not seen any mention of any special editions of the album aside from the bundles offered in the official online shop. After a quick Q&A with the clerk I found out that the exclusive version is the LP version of the album pressed on white vinyl and that it is coming out about a month after general release date of the album (November 25th). Here's a link for the listing in their online shop if anyone is interested:

Jarkko and/or anyone else "in the know" in Camp Cohen, do we know of any other special/exclusive editions of the album that are coming? Thanks for any information you may be able to provide.

Some weeks ago my contacts at Sony said that there will be no promotional releases etc but a poetry book is in print. I asked today for update, including more details about the poetry book (is it going to be a bonus somewhere?)

The white vinyl is available from B&N only.
The bonus poetry book is a local project in some countries only. It will be up to the national Sony Music Company. Unfortunately Sony Canada, the publisher, does not know which local companies participate in this campaign. So please everybody, let us know if you find it locally. - Sony Music Finland did not have any info about the books.

Thanks for the contact number Maarten.
Just checked with Sony Ireland. I spoke to a very nice guy who loves the album and although he had
no information about the book of poetry on file took my number and promised to call if he sources something.
He seemed interested himself.

Hi

Thanks for the help, ladies!

As for Belgium, here's Sony Belgium's respons by email (translated from Dutch):

"The lyrics bundle is in Belgium only available with a cd purchase at Fnac, until the end of stock. Due to the good sales during the opening weekend, it might be possible that all of these bundles are already sold out."


Mmmm... I think this concerns another "extra", but I'm curious what this "lyrics bundle" means: plain text or a booklet including extras...

Now there's two things to get sorted!

Tom
The lyrics booklet only has a different size than the cd booklet. Looks almost identical and same content. I can't upload a photo from my iPhone here... Will mail you.

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:)

I picked up my vinyl copy of the album this afternoon at my local Barnes and Noble. The sales clerk was nice enough to give me a "Friends and Family Event" coupon that allowed me to save an extra 25% off the purchase price. If anyone is interested in getting the album (or anything else from B&N) the coupon says it can also be used online by entering the code 25BNFRIENDS at checkout. The coupon is only good until 2:59AM Eastern USA time on Monday December 12th and is only good to save 25% on 1 item not 25%off the entire order.
