Pink Floyd to release newly remastered ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ collector’s edition vinyl

The new edition will feature UV artwork

Pink Floyd will release a collector’s edition of The Dark Side Of The Moon on crystal clear vinyl on Friday, April 19th. This will be a 2 LP 180-gram single-sided LP set, featuring UV artwork print on the non-groove side.

Originally released over 50 years ago, and becoming one of the most iconic and influential albums ever, Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side Of The Moon continues to find new audiences globally. The famous sleeve, which depicts a prism spectrum, was designed by Storm Thorgerson of Hipgnosis and drawn by George Hardie. The Dark Side Of The Moon has sold over 50 million copies worldwide.

This new edition of the album will feature the prism spectrum seen through the playable side of the vinyl whilst maintaining the best quality sound that fans will expect. It will be packaged in a slipcased gatefold sleeve, with an exclusive poster.

This is the first time that Pink Floyd has used this pioneering UV printing process on vinyl. The images are printed with a high-end UV printer, using UV-LED light to dry the permanent ink on the side without the audio on which the image is printed. This combination of one-sided audio and the UV print (on the side without audio) combines the best of both worlds: perfect audio and a beautiful image to enjoy.

The project follows the 2023 release of the remastered album on CD, LP, and Blu-ray, first available as part of The Dark Side Of The Moon 50th Anniversary Box Set.
