Black Keys, Flaming Lips, Deftones and more lead Record Store Day releases
This year's annual Record Store Day recently unveiled Jack White as its ambassador, and now we know a few of the titles that White and other vinyl junkies will be lining up for on April 20.
Grammy magnets The Black Keys are covering Iggy and the Stooges' seminal track "No Fun" for a split 7" backed by the original version. The orange and red sunburst vinyl is limited to 7,000 copies.
David Bowie is releasing his first album in over ten years in March, and will follow it with an RSD 7" featuring "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)" and "Where Are We Now?"
For the date-appropriate 4:20 crowd, Willie Nelson is teaming with Snoop Dogg, Jamey Johnson and Kris Kristofferson for "Roll Me Up And Smoke Me When I Die," which will appear on -- what else? -- green vinyl.
Meanwhile, Mumford & Sons, will drop “Live At Bullmoose” on both vinyl and, somewhat curiously, CD. Phish frontman Trey Anastasio will release ”Blue Ash & Other Suburbs” on limited picture disc.
Previously announced RSD exclusive releases include efforts from Best Coast, G. Love and Special Sauce, Grizzly Bear, At the Drive-In, and a whole lot of others. More info can be found here.
