As announced earlier this year, Record Store Day as it has come to be known will not be celebrated in 2020. Instead there are three RSD 'Drop Dates' in which you can get hold of the RSD titles from local record shops: August 29, September 26 or October 24. You can find the 2020 releases and their new Drop Dates on the RSD website or you can download a copy of that list here! Now would be a great time to find those releases you really want and let your local record shop know what you'll be looking for so they can curate their #RSDDrops lists.
While we’d all love nothing more than a party at our local record stores, large groups just aren’t the right thing right now. Those independently-owned community businesses remain essential, in our eyes, and may need the revenue brought in by the sales of the sought-after titles on the Record Store Day 2020 List this year more than any other.More details on what social distancing measures will be put in place by each store will be issued closer to the time and releases will be made available online from participating record shop websites at 6pm.
