We posted a story yesterday about a couple of special editions of David Gilmour's new album, On An Island, which hits the stores on March 6th in the UK and Europe, and March 7th in the US, which we reported on in good faith.

A number of retailers had announced that there was a limited double vinyl LP edition, and a limited double CD set, coming out in Europe. These were to be available alongside the regular single disc edition.

We now have official clarification on these releases. Firstly, the vinyl release will be a SINGLE disc edition, not double. Secondly, there isn't going to be a limited two CD edition released - just the regular single disc version, which will be the same worldwide.

We suspect that a number of you have already placed an order for the limited edition double CD from the various retailers who are still offering this.

We would suggest you cancel the order and get your orders in for the single disc editions, to ensure you are near the front of the queue for when they are despatched at the start of March!

If you wish to order the album from Amazon, for delivery upon release, you can do so through these special links: US/International, UK/Europe, Canada, France or Germany.

We know that a number of you will also want to buy the vinyl edition (or indeed, instead of the CD version!). Here's the links you need for this edition, which will be in a specially designed gatefold sleeve: Amazon UK, France, or Germany.
