Kishi Bashi will release three elaborate 7″ singles via Joyful Noise Recordings. Each of the three releases features a single from Kishi Bashi’s acclaimed debut album “151a”, as well as an unreleased orchestral cover song on Side B. The Side A singles “Manchester”, “Bright Whites”, and “It All Began With A Burst” are paired with re-imagined orchestral quartet covers of ELO, Talking Heads, and Beirut.
The vinyl itself features a unique 2-color splatter design, with a different color combination for each 7″ record (Purple & Orange Vinyl [pictured], Clear & White Vinyl, Blue & Bone White Vinyl, respectively). Additionally, the cover art for each 7″ correspond to each other – forming a complete triptych landscape image when all three are placed side by side.
The first 500 copies are sold as a three-part box set, including all three 7″s in a custom-built wooden frame. Each Box Set is individually hand-numbered out of just 500 copies, and is personally signed by Kishi Bashi. The 7″s are also available for individual purchase. The Box Set release date is March 19.
