Wednesday 13 April 2011
To celebrate Record Store Day, April 16, a slew of top acts including Beastie Boys, Foo Fighters, and the Rolling Stones are releasing special vinyl and CD editions.
Beastie Boys recently announced that they are releasing a 7-inch single of “Make Some Noise,” the lead single off their forthcoming album Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2 . All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross Japan relief fund.
A rare six-track collection from Nirvana dubbed Hormoaning, originally only available during the band's 1992 Australia tour, will also be available. Sonic Youth plans to re-release Whores Moaning, which was available during the band's 1993 Australian tour. Cover artwork pays homage to Nirvana's Kurt Cobain with a photocopy of a Cobain doll and a Cobain original drawing.
Foo Fighters will follow up the release of their seventh album, Wasting Light (April 11 in the UK/April 12 in the US), with a limited-edition album dubbed Medium Rare. Also The Cure will reissue a 1990 live album, Entreat, as a two-disc LP.
Other bands set to release special editions on Record Store Day include Adele, My Morning Jacket, Big Star, The New Pornographers, Panda Bear, The Flaming Lips, Nickel Creek, Superchunk, and Phish. The Rolling Stones are also releasing a seven-inch of "Brown Sugar."
Also to commemorate the fourth annual Record Store Day, Seattle's The Experience Music Project will launch its exhibit Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses, featuring 200 artifacts, many rare and unseen, owned by the members of the band and their crew and families.
More than 1,000 stores on four continents are set to mark Record Store Day, an annual celebration of independent record stores, through events and special promotions.
