Back of the net! The list of releases for this year’s Record Store Day has just been announced, and it includes a very special release from a certain Norfolk-based media personality. Alan Partridge’s ‘Knowing Me Knowing You’ gets issued on 12-inch picture disc as part of the international celebration of independent record shops on Saturday April 16. Here are four more releases we can’t wait to get our hands on…
Ezra Furman releases ‘Songs by Others’, a full-length collection of cover versions including takes on tracks by LCD Soundsystem and Beck.
Grace Jones’s ‘Private Life’ 12-inch is reissued, including her stunningly intense version of Joy Division’s ‘She’s Lost Control’.
Soul Jazz Records compile a new seven-inch box featuring ten of the greatest tracks by ska pioneers The Skatalites.
Skrillex and Diplo release their massive banger ‘Where Are Ü Now’ – featuring a certain Mr Justin Bieber – on ‘piss yellow’ 12-inch vinyl. Charming.
