Jay Reatard Single #5 Pre-Order Tuesday at 3pm

Pre-sale for the 5th installment of our Jay Reatard 7″ singles series begins this Tuesday at 3pm.

Here’s how it’s gonna to go….

On Tuesday, at 3pm EST we will reveal an email address on preorder.matadorrecords.com

Please send an email to the revealed address with “Jay Reatard” as the subject line. Those that email us in time to get a record will see a buy-link appear in the store when they log into their account within the hour. Make sure to send an email from your Matador Store registered email address. To be clear, sending an email DOES NOT ensure that you’ll get a copy. If you have yet to sign up for a Matador Store account please do so here.

We have even fewer copies of this 7″ than we had of the last one so we’re taking these extra steps to ensure that everyone gets a fair shake at getting a copy. That means less server lock-up, no waiting in the checkout line, and (hopefully) less confusion in general. Good luck!

  1. I am faced with a similar issue, so when I tried to register a new account with my primary work email, I am getting an error saying “The supplied phone number is not valid.” Which is funny because I think I know what my phone number is and the supposedly incorrect number is the one listed in my profile (which I can see). This should be a big bowl of fun, huh?

  2. i never got my copy of #4 despite successfully ordering during the first preorder 🙁
    also never got a response to my email asking what was up 🙁
    hope to get one of these!

  3. I haven’t received mine either… I was concerned, so I e-mailed and did get a response on July 28. They said they were waiting for more paper sleeves before sending them out. So I hope that’s soon. There is hope for you yet, evan.

    We may get #5 in the mail before we get #4!

  4. haha alright, i think i got my email in within 10 seconds of the address being posted! let’s see how this turns out!

    i say scavenger hunt for #6

  5. don’t have an email yet and there’s no link when i go to the store…is this working for anyone else?

  6. Has anyone received an email yet? I’ve been refreshing my inbox for 45 min! My email was in seconds after it was posted!

  7. If we receive an email but don’t purchase the 7″ before 4:00, will we still be able to order? (Still waiting on mine, btw)

  8. Damn! Did anyone else get an email otehr than Michael? This is killing me. I know (i HOPE) I was one of the first 100.

  9. Hey everyone,
    At this point the confirmation emails have been sent out. Those who got one should be able to log into the store and will see a buy link on the Trapped Here page.
    The link is not time-sensitive so order when you want.

    If you haven’t gotten an email, I’m sorry to say we don’t have a copy for you. As you saw, the copies we had for mailorder sold out in less than a minute.

    Please send an email to dean@matadordirect.com if you’ve received a confirmation email but don’t see a buy link on the site!

  10. Dirty… literally hitting refresh since 2:58, sent the email, i guess im out of luck.
    I like the way this preorder went. i thought it was very fair.

  11. Wow, I really thought I would have gotten in since I sent my email within like 10 seconds. Oh well….Thanks for the info, Dean. This was a lot smoother than last time 🙂

  12. Yeah, darn. My e-mail was sent out at 3:00:09… so it sold out in less than nine seconds!!!

    The quest to complete my set now lies with the middlemen…

  13. Hi Ryan,
    The buy link will be good until everyone who has a record reserved for them gets one, so get it at a convenient time for you. The madness is over!

  14. Hi Dean,
    I think this system is flawed. I have a bunch of friends on the west coast, and we all logged in right at 3 pm est, had emails prepared, copied and pasted within a second or two, etc., and none of us got an email confirmation. One of my techy friends said people emailing from New York IP addresses were far more likely to get through faster, even seconds ahead. Maybe a lottery system would be more fair? Just sayin’.

  15. I think this whole singles program (despite the glitches) has been fun as hell. I’ve only nailed the 2 most recent preorders, but was able to get the other three through conventional means (merch table and record store). My heart was pounding yesterday afternoon!

  16. Hey Dave,
    Thanks for writing. It’s really crazy how quickly all of the emails flooded in. I’m going through the orders from yesterday though and want to let you know that we received orders from Arizona, Oregon, California, Sweden, Ireland, Canada etc.
    Take care,

  17. I wonder if they’re ever gonna send these out…cause I definitely paid for mine and still haven’t gotten it.
