4AD 4AD has announced the December 8th vinyl release of Jóhann Jóhannsson's amazing album "IBM 1401, A User's Manual". It was originally released in 2006 and this is the first ever vinyl pressing.
In the last five years, Johann has established himself as one of the most important film composers around, notably scoring movies such as Arrival, Sicario and The Theory of Everything. Johann’s scores have been nominated for two Academy Awards, two Golden Globes, a Grammy and three BAFTA awards. He was awarded the Golden Globe for Best Original Score for The Theory Of Everything.
The double LP release comes in a deluxe gatefold sleeve, reworked by Chris Bigg (v23) from his original design. Pressed on clear vinyl, two live tracks recorded with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra have also been added and are exclusive to the LP version of this release.
