*LP is on backorder and expected to ship Fall 2021
We are incredibly proud to share "Promises" with you, the new album by Floating Points & The London Symphony Orchestra. The LP comes in a gatefold jacket with die cut shapes that show through to a fantastic painting by Julie Mehretu. There’s also a limited edition 180 gram version.
***Please note when ordering that, due to COVID-19, pressing plants have closed and slowed down, planes don't fly and ships sail from hither and yon, everywhere but the port you want them to. All this means there is somewhat of a mess when it comes to getting you a record on time. We apologize in advance and thank you for your patience.***
