Our in-house solution to vinyl manufacturing delays
Presently, in 2022, vinyl records are a commodity that require an ungodly amount of time to manufacture. Currently, it takes more time to make a vinyl record than it takes to create a human being. Rather than delay our artists’ releases for untold months, or cancel our longstanding tradition of physical subscriptions, we at Joyful Noise had another idea… We realized that while we have zero control over the global vinyl manufacturing fiasco, we DO have control over our in-house 1940’s record lathe machine.
As a way to deal with this vinyl crisis while continuing to keep our stream of physical releases flowing, we will be releasing limited lathe-cut singles throughout 2022 as “companion pieces” to our full-length titles.
Every VIP Vinyl edition in 2022 will be accompanied by a 7" handmade lathe-cut counterpart. Each 7" will include an advance single on Side A, an exclusive rarity on Side B, and a secret link to stream the album early.
Singles will ship upon announcement of the album (usually 3-4 months before its “street date”), serving as a “placeholder” while we all wait for the proper 12" records to materialize.
We want to keep our label community thriving for both our artists and our supporters. Though we typically price these lathe-cuts at $15 or $20, there will be no additional fee for this VIP lathe-cut component in 2022.
If you sign up for Early Bird, you will automatically receive every VIP Vinyl edition throughout the year, along with each advance lathe-cut single. We are planning 8 new VIP albums in 2022, which means Early Birds will receive a total of 16 records (8 advanced lathe-cut 7" records, and 8 pressed VIP Edition LPs). Each release is strictly limited to 500 hand-numbered copies and will be pressed on specialty colored vinyl.
