Kendrick Lamar to release ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers’ on vinyl

Kendrick Lamar has revealed when Mr. Morale and The Big Steppers will be available to purchase on vinyl.

The record is now officially available for fans to pre-order, and shipments will begin to be rolled out on August 26th. Kendrick’s package includes the full double-disc album, which has a running time of 73 minutes thanks to the 18 songs, and it is available to buy in black or alternatively in an exclusive gold-brown pressing.

Hip-Hop Hero’s review of the album reads: “Mr. Morale and The Big Steppers is an emotional listening experience. Over 18 tracks, and 75 minutes, you understand who the real Kendrick Lamar is and see the conscious rapper in a vivid new light.

“While eyebrows were raised by some when he was announced as a Glastonbury headliner, this album confirms his superhuman literary gift. Glasto Kenny deserves every ounce of praise he receives.”

Meanwhile, last week, Kendrick asserted himself in the history books with an astonishing headline set at Glastonbury which concluded with a powerful message supporting women’s rights.

As the set closer, ‘Savior’, was fading out, Lamar repeatedly recited the phrase: “They judge you, they judge Christ! Godspeed for women’s rights!” Adding to the intensity of the moment, Lamar’s head was encircled with a crown of thorns as blood dripped down his face. Meanwhile, his group of male and female backing dancers stood silently next to him.
