The third vinyl box set of Marvin Gaye‘s studio albums is due soon, but it seems that Universal have decided to issue a special 10-inch single of What’s Going On at the same time…
The vinyl single will feature the original seven-inch single versions of What’s Going On and God Is Love and perhaps rather more dubiously, a ’21st Century duet’ featuring Marvin Gaye and American singer-songwriter BJ The Chicago Kid (aka Bryan James Sledge).
As you can see by the sticker (above) also included is a new unplugged “coffeehouse mix” – presumably of What’s Going On.
In the UK this and the vinyl box are slated for a late May release, while US fans look like they’ll have to wait until June.
