Hand crafted by The Vinyl Factory as a limited edition of only 2000 copies worldwide, with a diamond dust screen-printed gatefold sleeve housing two 180-gram records, ‘A Diamond In The Mind’ will be released on vinyl on 25 May, 2014.
Speaking from the studio in London, where the band are working on their new album, founding member and keyboardist, Nick Rhodes said “I still find it thrilling when we release a record on vinyl, even more so when I know that every detail is precisely as it should be. The live show we captured in Manchester, definitely sounds at its best in this format, and is the closest you can get to being at the actual concert.
Since the title is ‘A Diamond in the Mind’, when it came time for the packaging design, it occurred to me that we should use some real diamond dust on our cover artwork. I really wasn’t sure I would get away with my request, but working with the incomparable Vinyl Factory to produce this special edition, they rose to the challenge, called their local diamond dealer and voila! We have that extra little sparkle that certainly brightened my day, when I first saw the artwork proofs.”
‘A Diamond In The Mind’ was originally recorded at Manchester’s MEN Arena in December 2011, where the band garnered some of the finest reviews of their career. The following year it was released on DVD. Now it has been licensed for vinyl from Eagle Rock Entertainment.
