Increasingly more vinyl/LP versions of albums are being released in both brand new and reissue versions. While some of these new release vinyl titles are being released on the same dates as other formats (CD, MP3) of the same title, most are typically released at a later date that can be anywhere from a week later to two or more months later. Upcoming releases that can be pre-ordered now from Amoeba, as outlined in the YouTube video above, include Travis Scott's  Astroworld 2LP  vinyl version that goes on sale Nov 9th (with Astroworld CD version going on sale Oct 12th).  Post Malone's beerbongs & bentleys 2LP Clear Vinyl  (Republic) will be available October 26th pre-order now while the beerbongs & bentleys CD release from several months ago is still avail. The late Mac Miller's summer released album will be avail on vinyl as a double album set; Swimming 2LP (Warner) will be available on November 2nd pre-order now.

The Kid Cudi and Kanye West collaboration project Kids See Ghosts Kids See Ghosts LP (Def Jam) will be available on vinyl LP version on Nov 2nd pre-order now. The 24 minute, seven track album from Kids See Ghosts is already avail as Kids See Ghosts CD (Def Jam). The standout track is the the late Louis Prima track  Amoeba review of Kids See Ghosts: "Dark, genre-bending, absolutely entrancing collaboration between Kanye West and Kid Cudi. Pusha T, Yasiin Bey, Anthony Hamilton, and Ty Dolla $ign make appearances and production credits go to the likes of Andre 3000, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), andBenny Blanco. That’s a lot of star power but this is no case of “too many cooks in the kitchen.” The project is atmospheric, addictive, and pretty experimental. This one will stay on your turntable for months." 

Meanwhile recent new vinyl releases to arrive in Amoeba and ready to order now include the new Atmosphere album Mi Vida Local 2LP set (also on CD), Jay Rock's Redemption LP vinyl (Top Dawg Ent.) that came out in other formats at start of summer including on CD, and  J.Cole's early 2018 release KOD vinyl LP (still avail on CD) (Interscope).
