    I wish there was clarity for how to get the CD and vinyl for this if someone’s in the USA.
    The 2-disk CD is on Amazon US so I preordered it and it says the release date is October 9th.
    Unsure if my only option for the vinyl is to order from a UK record store’s website on Record Store Day.
