Record Store Day organizers have announced that Taylor Swift will serve as the Global Record Store Day Ambassador in 2022. On top of her duties as ambassador, Swift will be releasing a “special” Record Store Day 2022 vinyl.

“I’m very proud to be this year’s Ambassador for Record Store Day. The places where we go to browse and explore and discover music new and old have always been sacred to me,” Swift said in a statement.

“Record stores are so important because they help to perpetuate and foster music-loving as a passion. They create settings for live events. They employ people who adore music thoroughly and purely.”

Swift continued, “Those people and shops have had a rough few years and we need to support these small businesses more now than ever to make sure they can stay alive, stay eccentric, and stay individual.”

“It’s been a true joy for me to watch vinyl sales grow in the past few years and we, the artists, have the fans to thank for this pleasant surprise. Happy Record Store Day, everyone! Stay safe out there.”

Swift is responsible for several of the top-selling vinyl albums of 2021. Record Store Day 2022 is scheduled to take place on April 23.
