Published Aug 03, 2015Exclaim!'s favourite album of the first half of 2015 is finally coming to vinyl, as Kendrick Lamar's masterful To Pimp a Butterfly is set to arrive on wax on October 2 through Top Dawg Entertainment.
According to a listing on Fat Beats, the epic 79-minute album is spread across two black LPs. The 16-song tracklist appears to have been preserved in its original form. (This is a change from 2012's good kid, m.A.A.d city, the vinyl version of which came with some bonus cuts on the D-side.)
The record can be pre-ordered here. Thanks to 2 Dope Boyz for the tip.
Meanwhile, Lamar has been working hard to promote the record; he released a video for "For Free? (Interlude)" just the other day, and he's been active on the festival circuit. See a handful of videos from To Pimp a Butterfly below, and read Exclaim!'s review of the record here.
