Taylor Swift Celebrates Record Store Day With Limited-Edition Vinyls

With the support of Record Store Day, Taylor Swift is rekindling the world’s love for vinyl records.
This year, Record Store Day has named Swift its global ambassador. This worldwide tradition began in 2008 to honour the unique culture of record shops and their proprietors. This past Saturday, Swift posted an Instagram story about her preparations for Record Store Day. Swift is “happy we get to commemorate these sacred and vital sites today more than ever” and “proud to be this year’s Global Ambassador.”

Taylor Swift Celebrates Record Store Day With Limited-Edition Vinyls

On Saturday, April 23, More than 300 Brand-New Releases Coincided With the Annual Record Store Day Event.

Two versions of “The Lakes,” from her upcoming album Folklore, 2020, can be found on the double-sided 7-inch transparent vinyl that Taylor Swift recently released. There were only 10,000 copies of the vinyl released, and they were all sent to local record retailers. Swift fans around the country immediately began camped out at record stores in an attempt to purchase a copy.

On Saturday, Chacho Perez, manager of Southtown Vinyl in San Antonio, said, “I already have two individuals lined up for it.” The question, “What are they planning to do?” I’ve been waiting for a 45 for the past 27 hours. There’s only one tune.” However, just 1,200 record outlets in the country received the limited edition vinyl.

San Antonio’s Music Connection owner Jesse Galvan predicts that this year’s Record Store Day will break all previous sales records for new albums. It brings people together, and Taylor might be one of them. Anyone could do it, right?

Last Words

Similarly, Taylor Swift promoted Grimey’s in Nashville by posting a photo of the painting depicting herself outside the establishment. Swift sent money to the well-known record store in Nashville during the COVID-19 outbreak so that it could continue operating and keep its employees safe. Swift’s contribution helped the record store’s 10 full-time employees immediately and covered three months of healthcare costs for the staff as a whole.

Swift also helped record businesses during the COVID-19 outbreak by donating cases of autographed CDs and records.
