For the briefest of moments the 4LP was available via the UK store. I didn't hesitate and I managed to get a copy!
I'm elated, yet I also feel very uneasy after spending £160 on a vinyl just like that. However it's not just any vinyl, of course... it's Mariah, it's Butterfly and it's truly gorgeous. It's due to ship a week after my 35th birthday so I'll consider it as a present to myself. I can congratulate myself on being both old and poor!
The 2LP is still available for £49: https://mariahcareyshopuk.com/colle...oducts/25th-anniversary-edition-butterfly-2lp
Keep an eye out via this link in case the 4LP comes back in stock: https://mariahcareyshopuk.com/colle...oducts/25th-anniversary-edition-butterfly-4lp
I wonder why the 8 bonus tracks are digital only though.
So, it's just a mess of release !
Cassette and standard lp with 12 tracks (cassette shipping in October, vinyl: time unknown)
Digital expanded edition with those 8 tracks (out now)
4LP edition with 28 tracks (12 + 16) (shipping from 3rd March 2023)
No cd at all.
I want to believe in that final " More to come " on her IG post.
