Joy, Phish’s eleventh studio album, and first in five years is available for pre-order now at Phish Dry Goods and will hit stores September 8th. Joy is available on CD, and also as part of the Joy Box, a Limited Edition deluxe version. We’re also pressing the album on 180g Vinyl, for people who understand what that means.
Joy was recorded in April and May of 2009 at Chung King Studio in New York City and was produced by Steve Lillywhite. The CD features ten new tracks including Stealing Time From The Faulty Plan, Kill Devil Falls, Ocelot and Joy.
In addition to the Joy CD, Phish is offering an exclusive Joy Box, which is available only at Phish Dry Goods. The super deluxe “Joy Box” includes:
* Joy, the album
* A complete second album entitled Party Time
* An extensive hard-bound booklet
* Ten individual Limited Edition posters (designed by a different
artist for each of the album’s ten songs)
* A DVD capturing live performances from the first half of Phish’s summer 2009 tour – including footage from the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival and the Summer Tour’s opening show at Fenway Park in Boston
The Joy Box will be available in early October, but you can pre-order today. Since this box will not ship until after the album’s release date, everyone who pre-orders the Joy Box will receive a free MP3 download of the entire album (10 tracks) on the September 8th release date. This box will ship on a first order, first ship basis, meaning the boxes will ship in the same order in which orders are received.
In addition, Joy will be pressed on vinyl (two 180 gram discs, packaged in a beautiful gatefold sleeve to keep your discs warm). The vinyl release date is set for September 29th and you can reserve your copy today. Each pressing will include a coupon with a free MP3 download of the album for your iPod or a friend or an acquaintance.
Phish Dry Goods has Joy T-shirts available, including the new PhishJoy (on an organic blank) and Stealing Time T’s, as well as additional Joy bundles.
