Track List

  1. Manchester

The first of three 7" singles from Kishi Bashi's acclaimed debut album 151a. In addition to the album single "Manchester", Side B features and an orchestral cover of "A Sunday Smile" by Beirut.

The orchestral quartet rendition of Beirut's amazing song was arranged by Kishi Bashi, and appears exclusively on this 7” release. The recording is not available digitally, aside from the download code which accompanies the vinyl. The vinyl itself features a unique Purple & Orange colored splatter design.

Each of the three 7"s in this series features a different orchestral cover song on Side B,  a different vinyl color, and corresponding cover art which forms triptych when all three are placed side by side.
