Pink Floyd continue to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their Dark Side Of The Moon album with the release of a new Collector’s Edition of the album on crystal clear vinyl.

The new version will be packaged as two single-sided albums, each featuring an ultra-violet artwork print on the non-playing side. One disc will feature the cover art's iconic prism spectrum, while the second will repurpose the heartbeat monitor graphic from the original inner gatefold. In each case, the artwork will be visible on both sides of the vinyl. The Collector's Edition will arrive in a slipcased gatefold sleeve containing a poster. 

The images were created using permanent ink and a UV printer, which uses UV-LED light to dry the ink once the artwork is in place. 

Pink Floyd have previously released a 50th anniversary box set of Dark Side Of The Moon back in March 2023, as well as a celebratory book about the album. They also released a CD edition and first ever vinyl issue of  the album, Live At Wembley Empire Pool, London, 1974, and a new version on vinyl, CD and Blu-ray in October.
