After going all-in on Nashville Hot Chicken—offering the Music City delicacy nation-wide, and introducing a newer, hipper Colonel Sanders to go along with it—KFC is slowly turning into a bunch of southern-fried hipsters.
According to Pitchfork, the fast-food chain recently tapped Fred Armisen, one half of the comedic team behind IFC’s Portlandia, to record some KFC-themed jingles from the perspective of the chicken king himself.
The result is Smoky and Spicy Sounds on Crispy Wax, a limited edition vinyl pressing released under the moniker “KFC’s Nashville Colonel and His Fabulous Band.” Both songs—“C-O-L-O-N-E-L” and “Nashville-Centric Boogie”—are available to stream on KFC's Soundcloud, but if you want the physical copy, you'll have to go digging in some crates.
Kept to a limited quantity, the lathe-cut, 12-inch vinyl copies were “hidden” by KFC at record shops around the country. You can check out a map of the record stores that stock the Nashville Colonel ‘s new LP, but you better act fast, because they might already be sold out.
If record shopping isn't your thing, and you still wanna hear Armisen croon about some crispy-skinned chicken, we've got you covered. Check out these Nashville-style bangers below.
