Everyone likes music that gets released in unusual formats, right? Welcome to part 1 in our occasional series celebrating the weird and wonderful items in our collections.

Our wizard Chorizo Garbanzo is very proud of his XTC CD single “King for a Day” that came in a crown-shaped case. From 1989 to 1995, record companies were allowed to release singles in multiples formats and sales of all of them would be counted towards a song’s chart position. “King for a Day” was released on 7″, 12″ and this CD single and reached number 82 in the UK singles charts.

Here’s the video.
