Parlophone Plan Record Store Day Vinyl Series

The Beatles, Bat For Lashes, Jonsi, Pet Shop Boys, Hot Chip…

Parlophone Records are releasing a series of limited 7” vinyl records to celebrate this year’s Record Store Day on 17th April.

Each release (from twelve different artists, limited to 1000 copies) will come in a vintage-style paper Parlophone house bag which has been designed especially for the releases and uses elements of historic sleeves from the 1960s to the present day.

Miles Leonard, President of Parlophone, comments: “Parlophone and our artists recognise the importance of our Indie stores and their contribution to not only our new and developing artists but to our catalogue as a whole. Being able to support this campaign with some great 7” releases from The Beatles to Bat For Lashes is our way of thanking them for their continued support. After all ‘Music Matters’.”
