Record Store Day is back on April 22nd and with it comes some tastier than usual exclusives. Yesterday, RSD revealed the extensive list of limited edition vinyl, cassettes, and box sets that will be available as part of its 2017 edition, and included are releases from The War on Drugs, Against Me!, and Poliça, as well as limited-edition reissues celebrating David Bowie, The Smiths, Prince, and Lou Reed. However, the most exciting news comes from the Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny camp, as the iconic Space Jam soundtrack is being re-released.
Back in February, it was announced that St. Vincent would act as the RSD Global Ambassador for 2017. She is also set to drop her new album at some point this Spring, so, who knows, maybe we will all be surprised with something else new come record store day.
