Boise Store Will Be Part of Record Store Day in April
Britney Spears, Billie Eilish, and Post Malone are a few of the artists who will be releasing exclusive new music nationwide on Record Store Day next month, and a Boise Store is participating.
Record Store Day happens every year in mid-April to celebrate Mom-and-Pop shops and musical independence, and artists usually release records that are a tad outside of the norm as a special treat for fans.
This year it's a load of limited edition vinyl, cassettes, and box sets that will be available on Record Store Day, and it's coming up in April.
New reissues are coming from Paul McCartney and Britney Spears, and Kesha will release a new collaboration with the Black Lips. There are plenty of other highlights too.
— Britney Spears’ second album, Oops! I Did It Again, will be released again with rarities, remixes, and B-Sides.
— The Cure will release limited-edition picture disc versions of Seventeen Seconds to celebrate that album's 40th anniversary, and they'll release the album Bloodflowers to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
— Gorillaz will release the G-sides and D-sides from their first two studio albums as standalone limited-edition vinyl releases.
— Billie Eilish will release Live at Third Man Records for the first time nationwide, and the album itself will look different than everything else on your shelf. It will be pressed on opaque blue vinyl.
— Black Lips and Kesha will release a song as a 7-inch single and it's called “They’s A Person of the World”.
— Robyn will reissue her 2005 self-titled LP with a tracklisting that's new for Record Store Day.
— U2’s debut single, “11 O’Clock Tick Tock”, will be reissued on limited edition 12-inch transparent blue vinyl. They'll also include two previously unreleased live recordings of “Touch” and “Twilight” from the band’s 1980 show at the Marquee in London.
— Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding is being released on vinyl for the first time.
The Record Exchange will open up at 8 am on Record Store Day to celebrate the new releases, and they'll be open until 9 pm.
