The people who already get excited about Record Store Day will be even more excited this year, as the Flaming Lips have announced they will reissue 1997’s four-disc Zaireeka on April 20. Via Exclaim:
The album gained cult status for its unusual playing method — one could listen to the four quarters of the full mix a disc at a time, but the “true” way it was meant to be heard was on four CD players, all playing at the same time. It’s not clear whether this reissue will include all four mixes simultaneously on a single or double disc, or whether it will be released across four, or even eight, 12-inches.
We imagine people are already setting up multiple record players, just in case.
