Record Store Day has announced a string of limited edition releases coming out on November 25, Black Friday. (Which they did last year, too.) While others fuel corporations with department store shopping sprees, Record Store Day will offer incentives to support artists and local, independent businesses, as they do once a year with their April holiday. Read the full list of releases here.
These releases can be found exclusively at RSD-affiliated independent record stores, although the organizers warn that not all stores will stock all items. Availability will also vary by country, and Black Friday titles for the UK, Netherlands, France, Canada, and Germany will be announced separately. (This list applies to the U.S. only.)
Check out a list of a few highlights from this year’s Black Friday releases, and watch a Record Store Day-produced video of Thurston Moore talking about record shops.
