Despite coming of musical age right smack in the middle of the vinyl resurgence, you’d be hard pressed to find a Drake album on vinyl. (Find the pun.) Oddly enough, only 2011’s Take Care has ever been released as an LP. Fans and DJs alike will finally be able to get their hands on more Drizzy wax soon, however, as his last three projects are coming to vinyl.

This year’s Views; last year’s mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late; and his collaboration with Future, What a Time to Be Alive are all set for vinyl release on October 7th (via The Vinyl Factory). It doesn’t look like there’s anything fancy being done besides a standard pressing, but the fact that the first two have only ever been available digitally or on CD and WATTBA has never seen a physical release is pretty special enough.

Views and IYRTITL carry a heft $35 price tag, while the third retails at $19.98. Pre-orders for all of them are going on now via the hub of all things hip and cool and fresh, Urban Outfitters.
