Limited edition release in "Dioramic Meta-Musical Funtime" gatefold jacket on tricoloured vinyl including activated midi player which plays the SAP version of the opening track when the gatefold sleeve is opened.

Includes download credit for digital download as well as come with a fold-out poster, featuring a collage of Emma Tillman’s intimate photos, designed by Alia Penner and an extensive “Exercises for Listening” written by the artist.

Sales of this original pressing were discontinued shortly after release when it was discovered that the elaborate packaging was causing warping and other problems with the vinyl. Sub Pop reissued the album in 2016 with the LPs packaged outside the sleeve and protective cardboard placed into the pocket to provide maximum separation between the vinyl and the popup feature in the gatefold, re-packaged in a resealable sleeve without the heart-shaped sticker found on the original pressing.

I have the tricolor 2 x 45 RPM LPs, with the apology letter and 18x24 poster of the cover art, no sleeve, that Sub Pop sent out to deluxe edition customers who requested replacement LPs in 2015 when it was discovered the first pressing was warped by the packaging. I don't see this version anywhere on Discogs. Would it be appropriate to add that version of the release, since it has unique materials (letter, poster), or is that gratuitous?

From Sub Pop: We're sorry that many of these fancy, colored-vinyl, deluxe versions of Father John Misty’s new album, I Love You, Honeybear are, it appears, warped!

... We are currently making 100% non-warped, colored-vinyl LPs to replace these damaged LPs. We hope to have a delivery date for those soon, and we will update this page as soon as we have that information. Please contact your place of purchase for instructions on how to obtain replacement LPs. If you got it from Sub Pop’s online store please email websales@subpop.com with your name and address, and we will ship you replacement LPs as soon as they arrive, which will likely be around March 3rd 2015.
