Announce 15-Year anniversary deluxe vinyl repress of Merriweather Post Pavilion

Out June 28th via Domino

Animal Collective will celebrate the 15-year anniversary of their seminal album Merriweather Post Pavilion with a deluxe vinyl repress due out June 28th via Domino. The album will be pressed to colour vinyl for the first time, available as a 2xLP in Translucent Green and Bluish and comes in a reflective foil jacket. A Domino Mart exclusive variant will include a 10-inch of their iconic single “My Girls” with a B-side featuring a live recording of the unreleased track “From A Beach” from a 2007 BBC Radio 1 session.
Merriweather Post Pavilion was universally acclaimed upon its release in 2009 and was named the #1 best album of the year by Pitchfork, MOJO, Clash, Entertainment Weekly, Spin, and Uncut“Every once in a while, musicians sweep away the existing musical landscape to create something new,” stated NPR at the time. “Animal Collective is such a group, and its new Merriweather Post Pavilion is such an album.”
It has since been recognized as one of the most influential records of the 2000s with Uncut naming it “one of the landmark American albums of the century so far” and MOJO labelling it “astonishing”.
“When it comes to 2000s indie, Merriweather stands as the era’s alpha and omega,” Pitchfork has written. “A diamond-cut reflection of the era’s eccentricities, seemingly impossible to replicate in form or format.”

The 15-year anniversary deluxe editions of Merriweather Post Pavilion are available for pre-order now.
