Work Drugs venture into the physical music realm with Delta (due out on vinyl next month)

By

This morning, Philly’s Work Drugs posted a colorful album cover and an exciting proclamation on their Facebook page: “Work Drugs – Delta … coming this November on limited edition vinyl and cd!” For a band that has released almost exclusively via Soundcloud and Bandcamp for the past year, moving into the physical format with vinyl is a big step. As longtime enthusiasts for this smooth electronic pop crew, we dropped founding member Thomas Crystal a line to get the scoop on Delta.

Crystal tells us the collection will be something of a Work Drugs “best-of” with remixed and remastered versions of favorite tracks like “License to Drive” and “Dirty Dreams,” as well as a few new tracks such as “Cursive Ground” and the title cut. He says band is planning to release the vinyl through a pay-what-you-wish pricing plan for the first 100 copies; the entire album will be limited to 250 copies, all on yellow vinyl.

Asked about crossing the vinyl divide, Crystal said “There has just been a lot of demand for the physical and I think we came to the conclusion that we wanted to release our favorites. We got it mastered professionaly and I think a lot of the songs really shine as compared to the old mixes. We also wanted to find a home for Dirty Dreams, so that will be on there as well.”

Keep tabs on Work Drugs either via Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr for more information on when the preorder begins.
