Join us on Record Store Day to hear Ian Brown's 2004 classic 'Solarized' on vinyl for the first time, in the dark, for free on the Soho Hotel Screening Rooms' sizeable sound system. 

Coming on the heels of the critical and commercial success of Ian Brown’s landmark ‘Music Of The Spheres’, ‘Solarized’ hit the ground running with its lead-off single ‘Keep What You Got’. Bringing together two generations of Mancunian indie legends its unforgettable video saw Noel Gallagher playing guitar on a street corner Ian Brown upfront singing and swaggering in his inimitable style. There were other treats aplenty throughout the set but no vinyl format for ‘Solarized’ was forthcoming. Until now, that is, and this heavyweight vinyl pressing lands in time for Record Store Day 2016 with matt finish printed inner bag and download code.
