Album & Metal Box super-deluxe box sets

As many of you had already guessed unfortunately the 'Metal Box' and 'Album' super-deluxe box sets (due for release today) have been delayed. This has been due to production capacity issues.

We are pleased though to now be able to confirm the CD editions will be released December 9th 2016, with the vinyl following on December 16th 2016. Thank you for your patience and support.

All 4 editions are available to pre-order from the Official Universal Store.

Update:
Please note: The editions are not fully sold-out. If the Universal store is saying sold-out it simply means they have run out of their allocated stock per edition. We are working to rectify this.
