It’s official. The critically acclaimed Zeds Dead album, Northern Lights, is getting a vinyl re-issue in celebration of its 5th birthday. The boyz decided that Christmas is coming early this year, and what better way to get in the holiday spirit than laying face down on the floor, listening to Northern Lights, on wax, for 10 hours straight?
It is crazy to think that it’s been 5 years since the release of this monumental record. The album features artists ranging from NGHTMRE and GG Magree, to Jadakiss, and Pusha T. The entire tracklist is still in my regular rotation. It smashed the ceiling on genres and has since amassed millions of streams across DSPs. Without a doubt, Northern Lights is a fan favorite when it comes to the extensive Zeds Dead discography. Therefore, we are internally screaming at the news of this vinyl re-issue.
Limited to 3,500 copies, and flexing a new limited edition colorway, Northern Lights will be on sale this Friday, October 15th. Set your reminders, call off work, and make sure you’re ready at 12:00PM EST because these will undoubtedly sell out fast.
And while we eagerly wait for Friday, listen to Northern Lights by Zeds Dead below
