Old is New Again: HarperCollins Will Release Special “Vinyl Edition” of Amy Poehler’s Audiobook in September
A couple of week’s ago infoDOCKET posted this item:
“Sales of Vinyl Record Albums Continue to Grow at a Rapid Pace in U.S.”
With that in mind, here’s some news from HarperCollins:
“HarperCollins Publishers today announced that its audio division, HarperAudio, will release a special vinyl edition of Amy Poehler’s bestselling audiobook, Yes Please, on September 1, 2015.
The vinyl edition includes seven highlights from the Yes Please audiobook, featuring the voices of Amy Poehler, Carol Burnett, Mike Schur, Kathleen Turner, and a live recording from the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles.”
Consumers who purchase the vinyl will also receive a digital audio download of the full-length audiobook.
“Recordings published on vinyl and read by the author used to be the standard format for spoken word recordings, dating back to when Dylan Thomas first recorded for our Caedmon label in the 1950s,” said Ana Maria Allessi, Vice President Digital Innovation and Publisher of HarperAudio. “Yes Please is a terrific recording that exemplifies modern audiobook publishing at its finest and we’re happy to be able to broaden its reach by releasing a vinyl edition.”
