Limited edition of 2000 copies.
Ólafur Arnalds' and RY X ethereal collaboration, Oceans, gets its first physical release in celebration of the UN's World Oceans Day on June 8.
This limited edition 7" vinyl features the b-side, Haf (Icelandic for 'ocean'), the serene sound of waves recorded off the coast of Cornwall, UK.
This release is an attempt at making the most environmentally friendly vinyl product possible, using recycled seaweed packaging throughout and zero disposable plastic. It's not a perfect solution, but with this experiment we hope to show that there are still ways we can explore to live and work in peace with our planet.
All of the proceeds from the ÓA webshop will go to the Coral Triangle Center, an ocean and coral reef preservation foundation based in Indonesia. They work closely with their local partners to strengthen marine resource management in the Coral Triangle with the mission of protecting coral reef ecosystems, ensuring sustainable livelihoods and food security.
If you are not interested in the vinyl, please consider donating to an ocean and/or marine wildlife conservation foundation in your area.
The Oceans 7" will be out on June 8 (USA & CAN release date on July 30).
