Tomorrow is the scheduled release date for a new single from former R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe, but it’s not just any single. “Future If Future” is being billed as the world’s first commercially available Bioplastic 12” record.
The single will be limited to 500 copies pressed on fossil-fuel-free vinyl. In a statement, Stipe said the release is “Simply showing that this type of solution-based project is possible opens pathways to a brighter future.” The flip side of the single features a ballad from singer Beatie Wolfe called “Oh My Heart.”
