Record Store Day is a time to honor music and the local record stores that serve as community institutions where all can gather to partake in the celebration of sound. Needless to say, we’re pretty stoked for it.

A year after shifting things around due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Record Store Day is set to return this weekend in a different manner than we’re used to.

Record Store Day 2021 will see special “drops” of exclusive material. The first drop is set to take place this Saturday, June 12 and the second drop will happen a month later on July 17.

There’s a massive list of exclusive releases set to drop this weekend. Among those include a yellow vinyl version of Lady Gaga's Chromatica, a "slime green" vinyl edition of the Shrek soundtrack, early works from Oneohtrix Point Never, live albums from The Who, The Police, The Grateful Dead, and The Rolling Stones, plus Steely Dan’s first American vinyl release of Two Against Nature.
