Last year, Stephen Malkmus performed Can’s seminal album, Ege Bamyasi, in full for its 40th anniversary. The performance undoubtedly wowed audiences at Cologne’s West-End Festival and now it’ll do the same for Record Store Day buyers come Saturday, April 20th.

As Pitchfork reports, the entire performance will be released on green (U.S.) and red (UK) vinyl limited to 3,500 copies. Peep the David Shrigley-designed cover art above and preview the night’s set below.

In semi-related news, Jack White recently was named official ambassador of Record Store Day. While there’s no telling what color he’d prefer, we’re apt to believe he’d make the trip overseas for red. That’s just a hunch, though.
