Record Store Day has announced their official ambassador for 2021, and it will be Noel Gallagher.
The former Oasis member is set to release some limited edition coloured vinyl of his forthcoming High Flying Birds greatest hits album, Back The Way We Came: Vol 1 (2011-2021). This release will drop on the first date of RSD, June 12th, and it will be created exclusively for indie record stores.
“Record shops were really important when I was growing up,” Gallagher says. “It’s something that’s in my DNA. I think if we can keep record shops open for as long as possible, we owe it to the young people of this country. For this year’s Record Store Day I’ll be getting involved.”
Check out the announcement in full below.
The second Record Store Day 2021 will take place on July 17th, and Gallagher’s Back The Way We Came arrives on June 11th.
