NATIONAL ALBUM DAY
National Album Day returns for its fourth edition on Saturday 16th October, and this year will spotlight women artists and their huge contribution to music and culture through the art of the album.
Revisiting iconic and influential albums by women artists, from the earliest pioneers to present-day legends, and pointing towards exciting new and future talent, the 2021 event will also highlight the integral role women play within the wider music community, not only as recording artists, but as songwriters, producers, and cultural influencers. 2021's ambassadors, who will be championing their love of the album between now and the build up to the day itself, are multi-platinum recording artist Sharleen Spiteri, 2021 Hyundai Mercury Prize shortlisted Laura Mvula, R’n’B/soul queen Ray BLK and BRITs 2020 Rising Star nominated Joy Crookes.
With special edition reissues from the likes of Amy Winehouse, Kylie Minogue, Donna Summer, Eva Cassidy and Patti Smith there really is something to suit all tastes and not only will we have these titles in stock, we'll also be looking to host live music during the day to showcase some of our local female talent, check out our social channels for more details.
