iam8bit is releasing a 2LP “best of”-style album with music from Cuphead

iam8bit likes Cuphead. They like it so much that they released the full soundtrack on a 4LP box set back in 2017 and later the same year they also did a promotional 7″ for it. Well, today they announced another Cuphead release.

The new release will be a black vinyl 2LP and is said to come in 1930s style packaging. Whether that refers only to the art style or other aspects of the packaging is not clear at this point.

The 2LP wil lfeature a selection of tracks from the original Cuphead soundtrack, but will also include some previously unreleased solo tracks.

It is priced at $30 for early birds through May 1, 2019 – and will then rise to $40, and it is scheduled to release in Q3 2019. It can be preordered from iam8bit’s store here.
