Praise Record Store Day (April 21st)!!
We know vinyl may seem ancient to many, but it is a celebrated listening format and one of the purest ways to listen to tunes!
Katy Perry and Bruno Mars are honoring the outdated format by releasing records featuring some of their current hit songs!!
Kaypers will release Part of Me - Jacques Lu Cont’s Thin White Duke Remix on a 12-inch single with Tommie Sunshine’s Megasix Smash-Up on the flip side. Bruno chose to press four versions of Grenade into his vinyl project.
Paul McCartney, Coldplay, and Bruce Springsteen are also doing their part in helping 2000 independent record stores that depend on the sale of the vintage medium.
Get your vinyl on!
