Possible update on Plastic Beach vinyl release

We reported a few days ago here that several online stores were listing a release date for a vinyl edition of Plastic Beach (which appears to be a 'vanilla' edition - no extras - over two LPs). Now nirniva writes in to say that the stores have pushed back their stated release dates, with September 13th the stated release for the UK on Parlophone, and September 14th the release for the US, on Virgin Records. Check out the original news item, linked above, for links to stores that are listing the Plastic Beach vinyl edition.
