After being postponed from April 18 to June 20, Record Store Day has postponed/expanded to a three-day event on Aug. 29, Sept. 26 and Oct. 24.
“Record Store Day will look very different this year, but supporting indie record stores may be more important than ever,” reads an official statement. “We don’t know what sort of rules will be in place, or what sort of gatherings people will be in the mood for this year, so we’re focusing on the music and getting the really great titles on the RSD Official List this year into the stores and into your hands, in the most financially and socially responsible way.”
Aug. 29 highlights include the archival ChangesNowBowie by David Bowie – spotlighting unreleased acoustic tracks circa 1996 stemming from a number of rehearsals at Madison Square Garden – as well as a 50th anniversary reissue of Paul McCartney’s solo debut, McCartney.
Sept. 26 will spotlight Fleetwood Mac’s The Alternate Rumors – with alternate versions of the group’s iconic 1977 release – as well as a clear colored vinyl pressing of Roger Waters’ 1990 Berlin performance of The Wall.
On Oct. 24, Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew will be released on vinyl for the first time.
