Record Store Day 2015

This year’s list of exclusive Universal Music releases for Record Store Day 2015  consisting of a huge variety of limited edition releases for the fans heading to their local indie store on April 18.

With a stellar selection of almost 70 Universal Music releases in this year’s campaign, some highlights come in the form of Johnny Cash, Florence + The Machine, Jay-Z and record store day regulars Metallica. Cash’s Koncert v Praze (In Prague – Live), recorded in 1983 behind the Iron Curtain, will be available on fitting ‘Soviet red’ vinyl, whilst the Sex Pistols will have their Never Mind The B*llocks LP available in picture disc format.

Island has announced that Florence + The Machine will be releasing a limited edition blue heavyweight vinyl 12” which includes new single What Kind Of Man on the A-side and As Far As I Could Get on the flipside. Fiction offer up a reissue of The Maccabees’ debut LP Colour It In which is accompanied by a sleeve fans can actually colour in themselves, ahead of some new music from the band coming this year.

Elsewhere, following their grand Apple launch last year, U2 have made a Songs of Innocence Deluxe double LP which features a white, die-cut gatefold cover. Polydor’s The 1975 will have a collection of four coveted EPs available that will include a printed sleeve with inner bag, and Virgin EMI’s Chvrches have combined their recent one-off single Get Away with Dead Air for a 7”.

The full collection brims with almost 500 releases, including a mix of limited editions, new issues and re-releases.

The eighth annual vinyl celebration will take place on April 18 with over 200 independent record stores throughout the country taking part this year, eclipsing the number of participating stores in the first year which was under 100. Foo Fighters frontman and Nirvana legend Dave Grohl has been named as this year’s Record Store Day Ambassador.
