Now music fans can geek out by creating a trendy music sanctuary in the comfort of their own home. This week, at a cocktail party held in legendary Studio A at Capitol Tower in Hollywood, Crate and Barrel announced a new collection that includes furniture, audio equipment and a collection of classic albums on vinyl in partnership with Capitol Records.

The retail chain’s answer to a man cave is the Listening Room, which will be released in all 170 U.S. stores as well as online this September, will feature exclusive furniture and accessories, cutting-edge audio equipment and a curated collection of iconic vinyl recordings.

The collection’s highlights will include U-Turn Audio’s Orbit Plus Turntable and Audioengine A2+ Speakers, Bowers & Wilkins P5 Wireless Headphones, vinyl storage solutions, richly textured armchairs and rugs, and unique decorative accessories. Crate & Barrel aims to speak to the entertainer, the musician, the collector and the designer by providing the perfect setting to enjoy the Capitol Records 75th Anniversary Collection, a limited release of 75 remastered vinyl recordings.

“We believe in the power of music to create connections, shape celebrations and enhance homes,” said Doug Diemoz, Chief Executive Officer of Crate and Barrel. “Music moves people. At Crate, we wanted to create a space for longtime collectors and those new to vinyl to kick back, relax and enjoy some of the best music of the past 75 years.”

The Capitol Records 75th Anniversary Collection will draw from the label’s storied archive and features remastered vinyl recordings from artists like Miles Davis, Judy Garland, the Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra and the Beatles. Newer artists such as Beck, Katy Perry, Sam Smith and others will also be part of the mix.

“My first record was The Beatles’ Abbey Road. Nothing beats the authenticity of hearing it again on vinyl, as it was originally intended, for what feels like the first time,” concluded Diemoz.
