In addition to serving as the Global Ambassador for Record Store Day, Taylor Swift is also participating in the April 23 event, which sees artists releasing and limited-edition exclusive vinyl albums and singles to independent record stores nationwide.
Taylor’s contribution to Record Store Day is a seven-inch single of “the lakes,” a song from the deluxe version of her album folklore. It includes two tracks: “the lakes (original version),” which has never been available on vinyl before, and another version.
As previously reported, Taylor has also contributed her song “The Man” to Portraits of Her, a charity Record Store Day compilation that will raise money for We Are Moving the Needle, a charity that supports female audio engineers and producers.
The dozens of other releases you’ll find in your local indie record store on April 23 include:
–A vinyl version of Elton John‘s The Complete Thom Bell Sessions EP, featuring six tracks; the original 1979 release only had three. Among them are the hits “Mama Can’t Buy You Love” and “Are You Ready for Love.”
–A double-LP vinyl version of Stevie Nicks‘ 1981 solo debut Bella Donna, featuring an LP of outtakes, B-sides and demos.
–A five-track vinyl maxi-EP celebrating the 35th anniversary of the soundtrack to Madonna‘s 1987 movie Who’s That Girl. It features remixes of “Who’s That Girl” and “Causing a Commotion.”
—A two-LP version of #1‘s, Mariah Carey‘s 1998 compilation of her first batch of chart-topping hits, plus four bonus tracks.
