The Weeknd has made a very limited run of vinyl records of his single ‘Out Of Time’, pressed to saw blades.

25 copies of the record were made and placed on auction yesterday, April 7, via VinylBlade.com for 24 hours.

The blind auction invited people to submit bids. It has now ended with the copies sold to the 25 top bidders.

The website states: “Do not use Vinyl Blade on a saw. It is not rated or intended for use as a functional saw blade. Attempting to use Vinyl Blade on a saw could result in serious injury or death.”

Handling with care is recommended for use on record players.

The record was made in partnership with art collective and app MSCHF.
