The full list of exclusive releases for this year’s Record Store Day has been unveiled, and it’s pretty extensive.
Record Store Day, a day dedicated to supporting local independent record stores, will take place this year on April 22—about a month from now. A ton of bands and labels release RSD exclusives, and this year there’s something for everyone. Major releases include rare David Bowie LP sets, an unreleased Smiths demo, 12” Prince singles, an Andre 3000 Beatles’ cover and rare singles from both Madonna and Patti Smith. There will also be a new live EP from Animal Collective that they recorded in a Brazilian rainforest, plus live albums from Bruce Springsteen, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors and The Grateful Dead. You can also look forward to RSD exclusives from Fleetwood Mac, AIR, Against Me!, Alice in Chains, Danny Brown, Johnny Cash, Cheap Trick, Miley Cyrus, The Lumineers, Sia, Spoon and even a fantastic tote bag from Run the Jewels. Oh, and the Space Jam soundtrack is getting reissued on vinyl.
We know it’s a lot. You may want to spend the afternoon looking through the full list here. If that doesn’t get you psyched enough, check out St. Vincent’s video announcing her appointment as Record Store Day Ambassador here, and Paste Cloud audio from a 1987 Bowie show below.
