We may have seen our last original Pink Floyd studio album ever, but the band has announced plans to reissue its entire catalog on vinyl in a series of installments throughout the year. The first wave of releases will arrive on June 3, and will feature the legendary British band’s first four albums — 1967’s The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, 1968’s A Saucerful of Secrets, and 1969’s More film soundtrack and Ummagumma two-LP collection.
The albums will be pressed on 180-gram vinyl and will feature packaging replicating that of the original records. The releases were remastered by longtime Pink Floyd collaborators James Guthrie and Joel Plante, as well as by another award-winning sound engineer, Bernie Grundman.
Pink Floyd’s new reissue campaign will mark the first time that the band’s entire catalog will be available on vinyl in more than 20 years. It follows a previous initiative running from 2009 to 2011 that saw the band’s remastered catalog re-released on CD and digitally.
