Record Store Day has just announced the new exclusive releases for their annual Black Friday sale this November 29th.
Organisers have expressed that they wanted to move away from the chaos that is often attached to other Black Friday sales and the perception of "mass-produced, low-as-you-can-go event". Instead, they concentrated on curating a list of special releases to celebrate the holiday event.
Among the special releases is U2's anniversary repress of their 'Three' single which was first released in September 1979. Pearl Jam will also be releasing their MTV Unplugged sessions for the first time ever.
This year's list includes:
Aretha Franklin - The Atlantic Singles 1968
Bruce Springsteen -Western Stars b/w The Wayfarer
