Labels mark UK Record Store Day
Independent music shops are taking centre stage today for UK Record Store Day.
The contribution from such outlets is being celebrated all over the UK, with numerous bands and labels backing the day.
Mike Smith, Managing Director of Columbia Records, said: “Independent record stores are the midwives for great music in this country and have been crucial to the launch of so many successful artists’ careers.”
The Rolling Stones are also part of the celebrations, with Universal releasing a previously unheard track by the band, which is available now on iTunes.
