Update: Kate’s official site has now announced that the number of discs has been increased to 4 thousand this year. Two and a half thousand copies of these discs will be allocated to independent record stores in the UK and the rest will be distributed to independent record retailers around the world.
On Saturday April 20th, for the third year in a row, Kate is releasing a special 10″ vinyl single to coincide with Record Store Day. Following on from the Hounds of Love EP (2011) and Lake Tahoe/Among Angels (2012), this year Kate releases a 10″ vinyl picture disc of Running Up That Hill (2012 Remix) and Walk Straight Down the Middle from The Sensual World album. The lead track, with all-new vocal, was a UK number 6 hit for Kate in 2012 after it was prominently featured at the Olympics closing ceremony. No firm news yet on the number of singles being made available with this release, but we will update when we can. Zoetrope animation of the actual disc artwork courtesy of Kate’s official site.
