More details about the mysterious TDS vinyl re-release

While I wasn't looking, Icklekitty got her copy of The Downward Spiral on vinyl on the 20th, shipped from What Records. It comes with a "Back to Black" sticker, boasting "Premium audiophile pressing on heavyweight 180 gram vinyl in all original packaging."

According to the (somewhat outdated) Back to Black website, which appears to be run by Universal Music Group in the UK, vinyl released under this program comes with a code that allows you to download the album in MP3 format. The record apparently comes in a thick plastic wallet rather than just shrinkwrap.
