XTC’s Andy Partridge will release new music next month, having christened his newly upgraded studio by recording a pair of his favorite songs: the Syd Barrett-penned early Pink Floyd single “Apples and Oranges” and the Bonzo Dog Band’s Humanoid Boogie, written by Neil Innes.

The two songs will be released June 28 via Partridge’s Ape House Records as a 4-song 10-inch vinyl EP, with each song appearing in both stereo and mono versions. According to the product listing, the record will come in “a picture sleeve with neither song identified as an A-side.”

The EP will be limited to a pressing of 1,396 copies, and comes with a signed postcard. The record is available for pre-order now through Ape House, with a limit of two per person.

Listen to the original versions of each song, released in the 1967-1968 period, below.
