Taylor Swift, Foo Fighters, Kacey Musgraves Exclusives Lead 2022 Record Store Day

Exclusive releases from Taylor Swift, Foo Fighters, U2, Kacey Musgraves, and the IndieLands headline this year’s Record Store Day, invading independent shops nationwide on April 23.

Swift — who serves as this year’s Record Store Day Global Ambassador — has a pair of releases planned: In addition to her previously announced contribution to the limited edition Portraits of Her compilation, Swift will also press a seven-inch single of her song “The Lakes” backed by the original version of the Folklore bonus track.

Foo Fighters have planned a seven-inch single featuring “Re-Versions” of a pair of Medicine at Midnight tracks (“Making a Fire,” “Chasing Birds”) featuring contributions by Mark Ronson, Preservation Jazz Hall Band, the Dap Kings, and more. U2 will reissue their 1982 single “A Celebration” with a 40th-anniversary 12-inch reissue featuring an outtake and the B-side “Trash, Trampoline, and the Party Girl,” while Stevie Nicks will rerelease her Bella Donna with an additional LP featuring outtakes and B-sides.
