“Friday On My Mind”
The headline pretty much says it and though rumours of this release have been circulating for some time, here’s the official confirmation from Paul Smith.
PAUL SMITH FOR DAVID BOWIE
Music is one of Paul’s great passions. He and David Bowie have been friends throughout their respective careers at the forefront of fashion and music. This year, Paul Smith has teamed up with Bowie for a series of special collaborations to celebrate the musician’s critically acclaimed new album The Next Day, out now on Columbia Records.
The latest instalment of the collaboration is a new, limited-edition red vinyl of The Next Day. The Paul Smith and David Bowie vinyl is the only collaboration on the album, combining their exceptional style.
This limited edition of the record is exclusive to Paul Smith. Paul himself selected the distinctive translucent colour – David Bowie has never produced a red vinyl studio album before.
It will be stocked on the Paul Smith website, as well as in selected Paul Smith shops and by selected wholesalers, including Selfridges and Nottingham Music Exchange.
Earlier this year, Paul Smith kicked off the partnership with the official T-shirt for the album, featuring artwork designed by Jonathan Barnbrook printed on organic cotton with ‘Paul Smith for David Bowie’ insignia.
‘David Bowie has worn a lot of Paul Smith throughout his career and I was delighted when asked if I would design the T-shirt for The Next Day,’ explains Paul.
The limited edition vinyl launches on 17th May 2013.
