Butch Walker will release an exclusive vinyl LP titled Cassette Backs for Record Store Day’s “Black Friday” event on November 25th. Recorded and mixed by Walker on an 1980s Teac cassette multi-track recorder, the album will feature unreleased demos and 4-track recordings from the writing sessions for his most recent album Stay Gold.
The eight-song album compiles stripped down early versions of standout songs from Stay Gold, including the title track, alongside previously unreleased songs about friends, kids, old times and lost loves.
RSD’s Black Friday sale will take place at selected independent record stores worldwide. Selections are limited (highly so, in some cases), and distribution varies from store to store. Check with your favorite local indie vinyl retailer ahead of time to verify that they’re an RSD store, and that they’ve ordered Walker’s album.
