As the world prepares to go vinyl mad once again with this weekend’s Record Store Day, Biffy Clyro and Spotify have announced that they have joined forces to offer the band’s 500 biggest fans a free, limited edition 12” vinyl recording of their recent Spotify Sessions live performance.
The release, which was recorded at Spotify’s Berlin office last summer, represents the streaming giant’s first foray into physical product. Initially uploaded last year, tracks from it have so far received 1.4 million streams.
Speaking about the release, Biffy Clyro said: "As big fans of vinyl, we are overjoyed at the prospect of our Spotify session being available on this format. Get your turntables ready, people."
Phil Christie, president, Warner Bros Records UK, added: “Biffy have some of the most enthusiastic and devoted fans in the world, and we’re really pleased to work with the band and Spotify to create this exclusive vinyl that rewards super-fans for their dedication.”
Adding to the unique nature of the release, Spotify will be targeting this offer to the biggest Biffy Clyro fans on Spotify, as part of its Fans First programme. The first 500 fans to redeem the offer will receive the limited edition copy on vinyl entirely free of charge, including postage and packaging.
