The Electric Box, as it is known, is limited to just 350 copies, all of which have already been snapped up on pre-orders. You can still gawp at this impression though.
A fluorescent-edged multi-coloured acrylic box has been designed to package the album, which has been pressed on five fluorescent-coloured heavyweight vinyl records (180g), contained in fluorescent outer and inner sleeves.
It’s not surprising the £500 set has sold out already. A 2009 box set of the band’s Yes album was showcased in the Design Museum, won Creative Review’s Best in Book and was voted Record Collector’s Most Collectible Record of the 21st century.
The Electric Box is not actually released until 7 October 2013 and Farrow says, ‘We are currently prototyping and testing The Electric Box and we are really excited about the direction we are heading – it’s going to be special.
The Pet Shop Boys’ Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe will sign every copy.
