Journey-composer Austin Wintory recently released an arrangement album recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra celebrating Journey’s 10th anniversary. Now he has launched a vinyl pressing campaign via Bandcamp to get it released on vinyl – including a bonus track from Flow recorded in the same session.
The release will be a 2LP on black vinyl. It will be housed in a gatefold jacket with artwork by Angela Bermudez.
It is priced at $45 and the campaign runs from now and until April 28, 2022. As of this post the campaign has nearly doubled its initial goal and is scheduled to release in September, 2022. It can be backed via Bandcamp here.
