Hovedparten af eksemplarerne vil kunne købes herhjemme. Desuden vil bandet sælge vinyludgaven til koncerter rundt om i Europa.

Et tilfælde
Product manager hos EMI Music i Danmark Jan-Erik Stig fortæller, at den helt ekstraordinære indpakning, der er lavet til vinyludgaven, er blevet limet og pakket i statsfængslet i den fynske by.

“Det er dog et tilfælde, at albummet er blevet limet sammen i netop Nyborg Statsfængsel. Vi havde bestilt Saybias LP-covers hos en leverandør, og det viste sig, at han tilfældigvis får sine ting pakket der,” siger Jan-Erik Stig.

50.000 eks.
Albummets artwork kommer helt til sin ret i vinyludgaven, der foruden en 180 gram tung plade indeholder en 24 sider lang booklet.

Her finder man en slags installation til hver enkelt sang.

Disse installationer er lavet af Louise Jensen, der er kæreste med et af bandmedlemmerne.
