U2 will be participating in the annual Record Store Day this year with the release of a "Red Hill Mining Town" picture disk. The band hasn't announced this yet, but producer Steve Lillywhite tweeted a photo of the vinyl a little more than an hour ago.

Hopefully my local shop will carry it. Looks like something fun to have and it's more in my price range than the current reissue of TJT. ;D

Nice idea, shame it's a picture disc.

Picture discs are cool, I think. I have one and only one (because I don't own a record player): the 1985 motion picture soundtrack for Back to the Future (2015 reissue)

The BTTF one is cool but I've always found them to look really cheap and tacky.
Give me a slip case any day.

I'm not a real fan of picture disc. The quality of it is often very bad especially when playd a lot. But it seems cool, will be trying to get it on RSD or on the internet. Wondering if the B-side will be a new song. Probably not! Haha

I can't tell the size from the photo, looks too big to be a 7". Is this a 10" or 12", do you think?

It looks like a 12" to my eyes.

I think it's 10'', the middle is to big for a 12'' LP

  • I know I'm not a hopeless case.
I know where I'll be that morning then. Also have a release of Bowie outtakes for RSD as well.

Yeah RSD is a nice day. But I'm never able to go because I have other duties (don't know a better word for it, haha) on saturday mornings. So I'm hoping someone will sell it a few months later :). That's the way I was able to get the SOI version

What tweet? Nothing to see here. It's gone, you must be dreaming.

Stay positive Smee. You got this, it's a purchase.
