The folks behind Record Store Day are readying special titles and releases for Black Friday
Record Store Day takes place on the third Saturday of April every year, and it’s a day that independently owned record stores around the world come together with artists to celebrate music with special vinyl and CD releases available only at local shops. Aside from the April date, Record Store Day also celebrates the art of music on Black Friday with its “Back to Black” Record Store Day initiative, and those are back for 2013.
The folks behind Record Store Day have confirmed that “Back to Black” will return on Nov. 29 this year.
“Folks have been asking so we thought we’d confirm that we are working with some good people to get some special titles into record stores, starting on Black Friday,” the organization said in an official statement. “Our list will be coming later in October.”
Meanwhile, a few groups have already confirmed that they will be releasing special titles on Nov. 29 in conjunction with Record Store Day, including the Flaming Lips with their “Peace Sword” vinyl EP and Fall Out Boy with a vinyl version of their new “Pax-Am Days” album.
