Record Store Day Announces 2012 Black Friday Releases

Record Store Day is set to return with its Black Friday event, which marks the second year we can buy limited-edition records on the busiest shopping day of the year. This year, post-Thanksgiving shoppers can grab releases from Rolling Stones, My Morning Jacket, The Lumineers, Skrillex and The White Stripes.

The Rolling Stones are set to release their first EP on 7”, which will include “Bye Bye Johnny,” “Money,” “You’d Better Move On” and “Poison Ivy (version 2).” My Morning Jacket is set to release the It Makes No Difference live recording on 10”, which was recorded at the Newport Folk Festival Tribute to Levon Helm. The recording features Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes. The White Stripes are set to release three singles including “Hotel Yorba (Live at Hotel Yorba)” b/w “Rated X”, which is set to be pressed on opaque red vinyl. “Rated X” is a cover of a 1972 Loretta Lynn song. The Lumineers are releasing a 10” EP titled The Winter, which will follow up the band’s debut.

“Five years ago when Record Store Day helped, and guided, the re-launch of vinyl wehad no idea where it was going. Looking at this year’s wonderful vinyl offerings, youcan see just how far we’ve come. There are some real treasures in here,” said Michael Kurtz, co-founder and organizer of Record Store Day.

The event expects to announce more releases as the event gets closer, so keep checking back for more details. Black Friday falls on Nov. 23 of this year.
