What a year for Joyful Noise Recordings.  Before 2013, I had no idea the label even existed…and now I’m shelling out dough for pretty much every VIP release they offer.  The limited vinyl is always stunning, the exclusive content for the VIP members is legit (first dibs, free flexis, access to test pressings) and they always include a piece of candy in their packages.  They’ve already won my heart, but they’re not slowing the pace down by any means.

They’ve teamed up with Lorde (a huge fan of Son Lux) to do some new versions of our favorite tracks from Son Lux’s 2013 album Lanterns.  I’m pretty certain this will be Joyful’s fastest sell-out to date since Lorde is one of the biggest names in music at the moment, so get a copy now before you take your coffee break.

If you happen to be a VIP, the white-in-clear version of 500 is available to buy right meow.  If you aren’t a VIP, you can sign up right meow.  If you don’t care about the VIP version, the less limited clear/white split variant will drop later today.

Listen to the EP below.

The Details
