    Universal Music Enterprises and Burger Records have joined forces for the release of the tribute album for Velvet Underground's White Light/White Heat, featuring indie artists Gap Dream, Natural Child and Curtis Harding, among others. The trib coincides with the album's 45th anniversary.

    Lou Reed once famously said, "No one listened to it. But there it is, forever – the quintessence of articulated punk. And no one goes near it."

    This partnership between UMe and Burger Records proves 45 years later, fans and bands of every age continue to listen and be inspired by this iconic album and is a true testament of the influence of The Velvet Underground.

    The release is available on December 10 via cassette only.

    On December 10, Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) will release The Velvet Underground - White Light/White Heat 45th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition, a three-disc, 30-track set featuring both the original stereo and mono releases, completely remastered, with bonus tracks including alternate versions, unreleased outtakes, John Cale's last studio sessions with the band, and the official release of their show at The Gymnasium in New York recorded on April 30, 1967, which includes five previously unreleased performances culled from John Cale’s personal copy.

    The album was originally released by Verve Records on January 30, 1968.

    Oh, and Fullerton, California's Burger Records is a rock 'n roll philanthropic quasi-religious borderline-cultish propaganda spreading gang of suburban perma-teen mutants, trying their best to make quality records and tapes for you since 2007.

    Tribute Track Listing:

    Natural Child – "White Light/White Heat"
    The Memories – "The Gift"
    Mozes & The Firstborn – "Lady Godiva’s Operation"
    Curtis Harding – "Here She Comes Now"
