Get your exclusive Snow Patrol 7-inch single here, only with The Big Issue

Flexi-discs, cassettes and CDs - what ever happened to the free music mag giveaway? Well, The Big Issue is bringing it back - we’re giving you the chance to get your hands on an exclusive 7” vinyl record of single ‘Soon’

The Big Issue is resurrecting the record freebie, once the heart and soul of music magazines such as NME. Remember C86, anyone?

Big Issue readers have the chance to get their hands on an exclusive 7” release of Snow Patrol’s ‘Soon’, taken from the band’s first album in seven years, Wildness.

The special acoustic version of the track, which deals with frontman Gary Lightbody’s father’s Alzheimer’s, features on a one-off one-side pressing of only 2,000, courtesy of record label Polydor.

To claim your copy, head here and where prompted enter the codeword starfighter before filling in your details to get the needle on the record. Be warned, it’s first come, first served.
