A new vinyl-only record label, Demand Vinyl, is to launch on New Year’s Day with a subscription singles club. Members of the club will get a series of singles, each of which will feature an exclusive track from an established artist and another by a newer artist on the b-side. Amongst the artists signed up to contribute music are Hot Chip, St Etienne, Memory Tapes, Niki And The Dove and Air France.
Each single will also come with extra content, including explanations of the songs by the artists involved, plus mixtapes, video and other online additions. In total, the set will cost £55, including delivery and a box to keep it all in, with subscriptions being handled by Pledge Music.
One of the singles will also feature a track by a new artist selected via a competition. Judged by Rob da Bank, the winner will also receive a day in Beggars Group’s in-house studio to record their track.
