Ariel Pink’s 11th album release,Special Edition! The title makes a direct and heartfelt reference to a real-life Los Angeles Bobby Jameson musician, long presumed dead, who resurfaced online in 2007 after 35 reclusive years to pen his autobiography and tragic life story. “His book and life resonated with me to such a degree,” Pink states, “that I felt a need to dedicate my latest record to him.” Dedicated to Bobby Jameson begins at the end and ends at the beginning. “We follow the protagonist through a battery of tests and milestones, the first of which sees him reborn into life out of death,” Pink explains, referencing the opening track “Time To Meet Your God.” “From there, he see-saws his way between the innocent love and the rock-solid edifice of childhood-worn trauma that together constitute his lifelong initiation into the realm of artifice and theatrical disposability.” This limited edition deluxe pressing features the 13 track album on black vinyl with bonus Non-Sequitur Segues picture disc, and 24″ x 36″ foldout poster, all housed in a translucent PVC sleeve.
