RELEASES REVEALED FOR #LOVERECORDSTORES

A number of special edition releases from the U.K. have been revealed for the #loverecordstores event taking place on 6/20. Amongst those confirmed are new editions of albums from Oasis, Radiohead and The Libertines.

The #loverecordstores campaign was launched in March to encourage music fans to shop online with record stores during the coronavirus pandemic. It aims to fill a gap in the music retail calendar left by the postponement of Record Store Day, which will now take place later this year.

A range of labels have pledged to make special limited edition releases available via the online platforms of more than 130 independent U.K. record stores on the day. The first of these to be confirmed include an Oasis Definitely Maybe picture disc, a Radiohead A Moon Shaped Pool white vinyl re-press and an orange and yellow marbled vinyl re-press of The Libertines debut, Up The Bracket. There will also be releases from Robyn, Belle & Sebastian, Bon Iver, Circa Waves, Mogwai, Caribou, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, and other. The full list of releases and participating stores can be found here.

To support the June event, a 24-hour online party will feature exclusive “at home” performances, DJ sets, virtual drinks, Q&As, readings and much more. Record labels taking part in #LRS are also designing a range of exclusive T-shirts to be sold around the event with the proceeds going to Music Venue Trust’s #saveourvenues campaign.
