Sony Music has announced that this summer Pink Floyd will start rereleasing its entire catalogue on vinyl for the first time in over 20 years.
Pink Floyd Records–manufactured and distributed by Warner Music in the UK and Europe and by Sony everywhere else–has set June 3 as the release date for the first batch of records, which will include 1967’s The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, 1968’s A Saucerful of Secrets, the 1969 soundtrack from the film More, and the 1969 2-LP set Ummagumma (that’s the one featuring “Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict”).
“Pink Floyd Records will reproduce the vinyl catalogue throughout the year with release dates being announced at regular intervals,” reads the press release. “In the meantime, all Pink Floyd records are now available on CD, digital, and most streaming platforms.”
So if you’ve been waiting 30 years to replace your dog-eared copy of 1973’s The Dark Side of the Moon–which was totally worn out by ’76–hang in there.
Your time’s gonna come.
