* Pressed on 180-gram white vinyl

Soweto-born musician Neo Muyanga’s haunting soundtrack to Second Hand Reading, an intricately drawn, stop-motion animation by fellow South African William Kentridge, pressed to white vinyl for a limited edition release. Album artwork designed and drawn by Kentridge, using imagery from Second Hand Reading.

Muyanga’s score of lilting pianos and melancholy, incantatory vocals acts as a stirring accompaniment to the piece which features hundreds of drawings superimposed on a copy of the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary and other lexicons and encyclopedia, where figures, objects and oblique sayings dance across the pages with agility and grace.

Condition - As New and still sealed in the original shrink wrap - the images used here of the opened sleeve are stock photos.
