Record Store Day has announced its full list of releases for 2016. As usual, the event — which celebrates its ninth annual iteration on April 16 — has served up a slate of unique offerings that’ll draw music fans of all stripes to record stores throughout the country.
David Bowie leads the slew of releases with his previously announced, posthumous reissues of “TVC 15” and “The Man Who Sold the World” on picture disc. Other vintage acts with Record Store Day releases include Patti Smith, whose Horses Live Electric Lady Studios features a live version of her classic LP Horses recorded in 2015, and Fleetwood Mac, who will put out an alternate version of their 1979 album Tusk.
Hip-hop heads won’t go home disappointed, either. The genre’s most anticipated Record Store Day 2016 release is J Dilla’s unearthed vocal album The Diary. Outkast will reissue “Elevators (Me & You)” on “glow-in-the-dark alien vinyl” to celebrate the 20th anniversary of ATLiens, the Weeknd will release a collection of “The Hills” remixes featuring Nicki Minaj and Eminem, and Run the Jewels will put out a virtual reality viewer designed for viewing their forthcoming “Crown” music video.
Other fascinating releases include: Bob Dylan’s Melancholy Mood EP, which will contain four tracks from his upcoming Fallen Angels album; an EP of remixes from CHVRCHES’ 2015 album Every Open Eye; an 8-LP Flaming Lips set named Heady Nuggs Vol. II Studio Albums 2006-2012; the Grateful Dead’s April 25, 1977 performance from Passaic, New Jersey; and a 16-song collection of Mac DeMarco demos.
