Oops – we somehow missed the release date last week for Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat‘s new album Everything’s Getting Older.
Anyway, we can share with you the announcement of a rather special edition of the release – a vinyl album. The CD comes with a 10 page roll-fold booklet, including the Frank Quitely portraits of Aidan and Bill, but the heavy vinyl version has:

Bonus 12″ with 8 tracks including ‘Pauper Don’t Preach’; ‘Intermission’; ‘External Memory Loop’, The Nearest Pub To The Crematorium and four early demos of album tracks.
Exclusive to the vinyl, there will a 12″ booklet featuring lyrics as well as the hand-written sheet music for Bill’s compositions.
