David Earl’s Headlander Soundtrack will be released on vinyl

Very little detail on this, but it’s confirmed in the music video description to David Earl’s track “Methuselah” on YouTube that the soundtrack to Double Fine’s Headlander will be given a vinyl release:

‘Methuselah’ from the Headlander soundtrack by David Earl, available now on Steam, coming soon on vinyl!

No word on what label will release it (or if Double Fine will handle it themselves like they’ve done with Brütal Legend and Dropchord in the past) or when it’s scheduled to come out other than “soon”. I will update this post when more info is out, but in the meantime you can enjoy said music video below:
