While a number of bands have already announced their plans for this year’s Record Store Day initiative, the full details have now been posted online. On April 20, a massive number of artists will be releasing album reissues, new singles, and rare and unreleased materials to support local record stores.
Included in the list of releases will be a 10” vinyl record from Mumford & Sons, titled Live at Bull Moose, which features live performances of "I Will Wait," "Ghosts that We Knew," "Where Are You Now" and "Awake My Soul." Also, The Flaming Lips will be offering up a four-LP vinyl box set of their 1997 release, Zaireeka.
In addition, Lamb of God will reissue their 2000 debut album, New American Gospel, which has been out of print for about a decade. All proceeds from the release will benefit the legal defense fund of frontman Randy Blythe, who was recently acquitted of manslaughter by a Czech Republic court.
Meanwhile, Rob Zombie will be dropping a 10” vinyl single that can only be properly enjoyed when played in reverse. It will feature “Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Supertown” and “Teenage Nosferatu P***y” from his upcoming fifth solo album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor.
You can also add Pink Floyd, David Bowie and Ringo Starr to the list of artists who will make contributions to Record Store Day next month.
A seven-inch vinyl single from Pink Floyd, featuring "See Emily Play" and "Scarecrow," will be released on Record Store Day. "See Emily Play" was the band's second U.K. single; "Scarecrow" was its B-side.
"See Emily Play" was featured on the U.S. version of Pink Floyd's debut album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn.
Bowie will put out a seven-inch picture disc celebrating the 40th anniversary of the single "Drive-In Saturday."
Ringo will release a seven-inch vinyl singles collection, featuring "Photograph," "It Don't Come Easy" and "(It's All Down To) Goodnight Vienna."
Blind Melon, Ben Harper and Frank Zappa & The Mothers are among the other newly-announced artists participating in Record Store Day.
As previously reported, special vinyl releases from The White Stripes, Soundgarden, The Black Keys, Avenged Sevenfold and R.E.M. will also be available. You can check out the full list of releases at RecordStoreDay.com.
