It was teased with a listing on New On Vinyl months back, but now Ghostly International finally listed C418’s Volume Alpha soundtrack from Minecraft.
Not only have the release been confirmed, but there’s also more versions than what was originally reported. There are two colors – black and green translucent – and then there’s two types of covers – a standard and a lenticular one.
The lenticular cover and green vinyl combo has sold out, but all others remain ready to preorder. The release date is set to August 21.
