Paul McCartney and David Bowie to release Record Store Day specials
Story by Jack Foley
PAUL McCartney and David Bowie will be releasing special edition discs to show their support for this year’s Record Store Day on Saturday, April 20.
McCartney will release a live version of Maybe I’m Amazed on 12” vinyl, which was originally released as a radio promo single in 1976, while Bowie will release a 7” vinyl copy of his recent singles The Stars (Are Out Tonight) and Where Are We Now? limited to 1,000 copies.
He will also offer fans 1,000 pressings of four-track EP Bowie 1965! and 2,000 7” picture discs of Drive-In Saturday.
The iconic duo are among hundreds of artists who will release limited edition vinyls and CDs for the annual music event, which encourages customers to visit their local independent record shops and maintain the grand old tradition of actually buying records, rather than downloading them.
Foals, Biffy Clyro, Jake Bugg and The Horrors are among the other acts releasing special edition packages for this year’s Record Store Day – the full line-up of which will be announced on March 21.
