Bo Burnham has just announced he’s releasing Vinyls and CDs of his hit album Inside (The Songs)
Bo Burnham began his comedy career on Youtube in 2006, known for making comedic songs. He then went on to perform live and make various specials like Bo Burnham: what. and Bo Burnham: Make Happy, both on Netflix. After the release of Make Happy, Burnham decided to take a break from performing live and instead focusing on directing, producing and acting, due to the severe panic attacks he was experiencing. After years of not performing, various acting roles, and a film later, he was ready to try performing again. Still, like most of us, his plans were crushed when the world suddenly fell victim to a pandemic. So then he instead creates the masterpiece that is Inside.
The Comedy Special And Album
Inside is a Netflix comedy special written, directed, edited by, filmed by, and performed by the one and only Bo Burnham. Since we were all stuck “inside,” he made a comedy special singing songs that uplift our spirits and bring the world’s harsh reality. Topics talked about in the special include Mental Health, The Internet, and the 1%. This is, of course, all things Gen Z is super involved with, so it’s no surprise it was an instant hit when it was finally available on Netflix. With the most significant request being “where can I stream the songs?”. Thus, almost two weeks after its release, Inside (The Songs) was made available on all streaming platforms, and it was a success! The soundtrack held a spot in the top 10 in the Billboard Top 200 for six weeks straight.
The album was a sensation, but people still wanted to have a physical copy of it. What the public wants the public gets, and on September 2nd, Bo Burnham announced that Vinyl and CD copies of Inside (The Songs) were now available for preorder! The copies are set to ship on December 3rd. Limited edition Vinyls will be sold at Target, Urban Outfitters, and independent retailers. Originally there were Signed CDs up for grabs, but they are now sold out! So make sure to grab your Vinyls and CDs soon before they all do!
