Classic albums get double vinyl treatment
Radiohead are to reissue their albums ‘Kid A’ and ‘Amnesiac’ on double vinyl on October 14.
Originally released in 2000 and 2001 respectively, the albums were initially available as double 10” releases on Radiohead’s then-record label Parlophone.
When the reissues were first announced in May, it was indicated that both ‘Kid A’ and ‘Amnesiac’ would be available again as double 10”s. However, it’s now been confirmed each album will be issued on heavyweight double 12” vinyl.
The albums will be released by XL, the label Radiohead joined for 2007’s ‘In Rainbows’ after criticising Parlophone when controversial chief Guy Hands took over parent label EMI following the release of 2003’s ‘Hail To The Thief’.
‘Kid A’ and ‘Amnesiac’ complete the reissues of Radiohead’s back catalogue on vinyl. ‘Pablo Honey’, ‘The Bends’, ‘OK Computer’, ‘Hail To The Thief’, ‘In Rainbows’ and ‘The King Of Limbs’ were reissued on heavyweight vinyl in May, coinciding with the release of new album ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’.
Meanwhile, Radiohead are on a brief break after playing at Summer Sonic festival in Japan last weekend (August 20-21). They currently have five dates left for ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’, resuming at the Berlin leg of Lollapalooza festival on September 11. They then play four shows in Mexico and the USA, ending at Austin City Limits festival in Texas on October 7.
