Here's the press release...
Joy, Phish's eleventh studio album, and first in five years is available for pre-order now at Phish Dry Goods and will hit stores September 8th. Joy is available on CD, and also as part of the Joy Box, a Limited Edition deluxe version. We've also pressed the album on 180g Vinyl.
Joy was recorded in April and May of 2009 at Chung King Studio in New York City and was Produced by Steve Lillywhite. The CD features ten new tracks including "Stealing Time From The Faulty Plan", "Kill Devil Falls", "Ocelot" and "Joy".
In addition to the Joy CD, Phish is offering an exclusive Joy Box, which is available only at Phish Dry Goods. The super deluxe, Limited "Joy Box" will include the album, a bound booklet, ten individual Limited Edition posters designed for each of the album's ten songs, a second album entitled Party Time, and a DVD capturing live performances from the first half of Phish's summer 2009 tour - including footage from the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival and the Summer Tour's opening show at Fenway Park in Boston.
The Joy Box will be available in early October, but you can pre-order today. Since this box set will not ship until after the album's release date, everyone who pre-orders the Joy Box will receive a free MP3 download of the entire album (10 tracks) on the September 8th release date.
Joy is also being pressed on vinyl (two 180gram discs, packaged in beautiful gatefold sleeve). The vinyl release date is set for September 29th and you can reserve your copy today. Each pressing will include a coupon with a free MP3 download of the album.
