With his computer-twerky Timbaland beats and throwback tuxes, few people blend the past and the future better than Justin Timberlake. He’ll go a step further once The 20/20 Experience — 2 of 2 hits the streets in October, when you’ll be able to buy the entirety of The 20/20 Experience on a super-deluxe four-LP vinyl set.
Hitting store shelves on October 1 (the same day as 2 of 2 lands), The 20/20 Experience: Complete Experience will feature four vinyl discs with every song from Timberlake’s comeback project. Vinyl is a logical choice for Timberlake — it’s a classic piece of technology (the old) that has nevertheless seen a resurgence (the new): Vinyl sales are expected to move nearly six million units this year, an increase of almost 30 percent over last year’s numbers. And vinyl has been good to Timberlake, too; the vinyl version of The 20/20 Experience has been a steady seller since its release back in March.
Will you pick up the extra-large, extra-bulky, extra-expensive version of The 20/20 Experience in October? While we’re at it: How much vinyl do you buy? I find I tend to gravitate to older stuff when it comes to LPs, but I’m more likely to buy a new hip-hop album in 12-inch form than any other format. What’s your approach? Let us know in the comments.
