22 Feb Brandi Carlile Named Record Store Day 2020 Ambassador
For its 13th annual celebration, which takes place April 18, Record Store Day has selected Brandi Carlile as its official Record Store Day 2020 Ambassador
Past artists to be named ambassador include Pearl Jam (2019), Run the Jewels (2018), St. Vincent (2017), and Metallica (2016).
“Brandi’s career has woven through record stores from the beginning, and I can barely remember when there hasn’t been a Brandi Carlile record in their racks and on their charts,” says Carrie Colliton, Record Store Day co-founder, in a statement.
“Record stores really are tastemakers—in all genres, across the country—and they’ve been shouting about Brandi and the Twins for years,” she says, referring to Carlile’s bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth.
While the official 2020 Record Store Day list has yet to be revealed, several artists and labels have started announcing titles, while other rumoured releases have begun popping up online.
However, we’ve discovered a list of both the official and rumoured Record Store Day 2020 titles, thanks to the dedicated vinyl fanatics over on Reddit.
As you’ll see below, the list is still very much in its early stages, but there are already plenty of notable releases incoming.
So far, we can apparently expect exclusives from the likes of Neil Young, David Bowie, Gorillaz, Black Sabbath, New Order, My Chemical Romance, John Lennon, Grateful Dead, Prince and Pink Floyd, among others.
