KFC Created a Nashville Hot Record Album to Honor Its Fried Chicken

KFC has been known to dabble in unusual promotional materials such as chicken-scented sunscreen and edible nail polish, however now the brand has gone even further and created a Nashville Hot Record Album in honor of one of its newest dishes. Even more impressive is the fact that the record is not just a decorative piece, but actually boasts real tracks.

The Nashville Hot Record Album was created as part of a partnership between the fast food brand and actor Fred Armisen. The record itself is a 331/3 pressed vinyl containing a number of tracks written and performed by Armisen, commemorating the return of Nashville Hot Chicken at KFC. To convey the chicken's bold flavors, the album boasts a "sweet/spicy theme" that carries through to the album artwork.

While the idea of a fast food brand creating a record may sound unusual, KFC choose to create the album because Colonel Sanders himself actually released six of his own records over the course of his life.
