HEAR ‘BENNINGTON (2007)’ BY JOHN MAUS; FEW SPECIAL EDITION LPs REMAIN
John Maus’ A Collection of Rarities and Previously Unreleased Material is out on LP, CD and digitally next month (July 17th in North America; July 16th in the rest of the world, to be exact). The album’s cover and inner sleeve artwork were provided by Turner Prize winning artist/photographer Wolfgang Tillmans.
Bear in mind, the LP is limited to a one time worldwide pressing of 3000 copies (500 translucent pink / 2500 standard black). Very few special edition translucent pink LPs (pictured above) remain and are available to pre-order now from the Ribbon Mart.
We’ve already shared ‘No Title (Molly) (2008)’ and ‘Mental Breakdown (2004)’ from the compilation and, below, is another track ‘Bennington (2007)’, which initially appeared on The Beat Blocker Compilation (2008) as well as Rarities for Rough Trade. Enjoy.
