Universal Music has announced that it will be launching a service that will re-release deleted and rare records of old albums if there is enough demand from the crowd. Operated by the vinyl-focussed website Uvinyl, the reissued records will come with digital downloads and “personalized art prints.”
Mashable reports that the releases will be crowdfunded by the public in the style of a Kickstarter project. Records that have been considered for the service include ABC by The Jackson 5, Björk’s Biophilia, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road by Elton John, His N Hers by Pulp, and Hysteria by Def Leppard.
