MoMA/MoMA PS1 Records—yes, the institutions have a record label—has released a special vinyl edition of The Thoughts of Gilbert & George, a recording that revisits their landmark work The Singing Sculpture, discussing the process of its creation as they sit in the studio. Apparently it’s their take on an old-time radio show, which sounds fun. It’s a signed and numbered edition of 2,000, and it can be yours for $50.

And while the release makes sense, given the “Gilbert & George: The Early Years” show that was up at MoMA last year, what’s really intriguing is MoMA/MoMA PS1 Records, and the existence of MoMA studios, which is a recording hub inside the museum. Prior to this the sole release on MoMA/MoMA PS1 Records was There Will Never Be Silence, which had artists and musicians respond to the work of John Cage. Who knows what hot vinyl MoMA is set to release next.
