Fans’ first chance to get hold of a copy of the limited edition 12” vinyl release will be on Saturday October 8. 200 signed copies will be available to buy at the XL Recordings stall at the Independent Label Market in New York.

The inaugural Independent Label Market took place in London on May 21st when the UK’s leading independent labels took over London’s Berwick Street market to sell a combination of new, old and exclusive releases.
