Want to know what's coming next on Fringe? You might need to go to your local independent record store and delve into mad scientist Walter Bishop's groovy musical tastes.

The next episode of Fringe, airing Jan. 21, features Walter meeting his musical idol, Roscoe Joyce, who was the keyboard player in the 1970s band Violet Sedan Chair. (And he's played by Christopher Lloyd.) To tie in with the episode, the show's producers created an actual vinyl album by Violet Sedan Chair called "Seven Suns," and shipped copies to record stores around the country. (And now we're dying to hear what this thing sounds like!) Apparently the records have been sitting in stores for a couple of months already.

But each copy of the record is unique, containing its own set of clues and spoilers about the show hidden in the lyrics and liner notes, and possibly elsewhere. Time to go record hunting, peeps! [TV Line]
