Director Marcel Dzama’s art film Une Danse Des Bouffons (translated as The Jester’s Dance) has received a 7″ vinyl soundtrack release.

The score is by Dzama with Arcade Fire members Will Butler, Jeremy Gara, and Tim Kingsbury. It consists of four largely instrumental music songs.

You won’t, however, find this in any store and word is it will never be repressed.

The only way to lay your hands on one is via the 2014 edition of the annual music issue of The Believer magazine (it came out in the first week of July).

Though the mag is already out, you can still subscribe and get the July-August edition right now (at the time of this post) and in turn get the 7″ as part of the deal.

As such this is a very limited release.

Here’s where you need to go to get one: The Believer Subscription
