This vinyl record, a new artwork by the artists Gilbert & George, revisits one of their signature works, The Singing Sculpture. Issued in conjunction with the recent exhibition of their work at MoMA, Gilbert & George: The Early Years (May 9–September 27, 2015), The Thoughts of Gilbert & George follows the debut release by MoMA/MoMA PS1 Records in September 2014, There Will Never Be Silence, an album that paid homage to John Cage. The Thoughts of Gilbert & George was organized by David Platzker, Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints, MoMA, and Jenny Schlenzka, Associate Curator, MoMA PS1.

The record is available exclusively at MoMA stores and online at store.moma.org through September, when it will go into wider release. The record is a signed and numbered edition of 2,000 copies and retails at $50.00.
