Richard Marx Announces 'The Vault' Vinyl EP Series


The new vinyl release is expected to ship in January 2022.

Richard Marx Announces 'The Vault' Vinyl EP Series

Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, producer and best-selling author Richard Marx has announced The Vault - Vol. 1, the first in a multi-run series of colored vinyl EPs featuring unreleased demos and early material.

A series of just 500 limited edition vinyl featuring early Marx's demos from before his first record deal, Volume 1 features four songs and is printed on yellow vinyl.

Pre-order the new release here.

"One good thing that came out of the pandemic was finally having the time to go through old tapes I hadn't heard in decades," says Marx of the release.

"Hearing songs I wrote in my very early days of songwriting mostly made me cringe, but I also heard some songs I thought maybe some fans would enjoy, and the idea of releasing them on vinyl really appealed to me."

Earlier this year Marx's memoir Stories To Tell, available now via Simon & Schuster, earned the singer the title National Bestseller and a spot on the Publishers Weekly nonfiction list.

The literary debut recounts the singer/songwriter's life and career - where he's sold more than 30 million albums, landed a number one song in each of the last four decades and became the first male artist to have seven singles to reach the Top 5 on the Billboard charts. Throughout Richard offers a ruminative and refreshingly candid account of his successes and failures in the music industry as he's experienced it over the last four decades.

Richard Marx has been a cultural, pop-rock touchstone since the late '80s, early '90s but his influence is still felt in pop culture today. John Mayer's new album, Sob Rock, as Esquire noted even borrows riffs, vibes and graphic design akin to Marx's early years. Richard will also kick off a live tour in early 2022. Full list of US dates is below.

Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, producer and best-selling author Richard Marx has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, landing a #1 song on the charts (for himself and others) in each of the past four decades. He remains the only male artist in history whose first seven singles reached the Top 5 on the Billboard charts. A father to three grown sons (all are musicians), he lives between LA and Miami with his wife Daisy Fuentes. Marx is active in many charitable organizations, including the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, the American Cancer Society, St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, and Mercy for Animals.
