Some of our favorite releases include the return of Arcade Fire and the most anticipated record of the year, Kanye’s Yeezus. Again, this consists of our Top 12 releases but it is not a ranked list.

During an impromptu Twitter Q&A, Hova revealed that he will be releasing a special edition of his latest album and that Jack White would be handling the task. White’s Third Man Records has now confirmed they’ll be releasing Magna Carta… Holy Grail on vinyl.

MCHG was released in standard formats on July 9th, but Third Man is known to put out special vinyl edition (available for purchase in the coming weeks) so it’s safe to say something dope is on its way. Like Jay-Z had mentioned, the song “Open Letter” will be featured as a vinyl exclusive.

More details to come on this release via thirdmanrecords.com.
