Sufjan Stevens album 'The Avalanche' gets first ever vinyl release


Sufjan Stevens has announced that his 2006 album The Avalanche will be released on vinyl for the first time.

The record is made up of outtakes and sample recordings from sessions taken from his album Illinois which was released a year earlier. The title track ‘The Avalanche’ was also a bonus track on the Illinois vinyl and iTunes release.

The 2xLP set will be pressed on to “Hatchback Orange” and “Avalanche White” coloured vinyl and will be released August 31. The album is made up of 21 different pieces of music.

Here’s a little glimpse of the vinyl:

In other vinyl news, it was revealed that the soundtrack to Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name is getting a rare and limited edition “peach season” vinyl release.

Music on Vinyl will issue the two LP set early August and will only put out 7,777 copies.

The vinyl will be pressed on the peach-coloured and scented vinyl, and it will only be available “in Peach Harvest season,” according to a press release.

American singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens composed two original songs for the film, and the soundtrack also features songs by The Psychedelic Furs, Franco Battiato, Loredana Bertè, Bandolero, Giorgio Moroder, Joe Esposito and F. R. David.

The score also includes compositions by John Adams, Erik Satie, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Johann Sebastian Bach, and Maurice Ravel.
