The 1975 named 2023 Record Store Day ambassadors

The 1975 for Record Store Day - Brand Ambassador - The Celebrity Group
The 1975 have been named this year's official ambassadors for Record Store Day in the UK. Record Store Day 2023 will be held on April 22. As part of the job, the Manchester quartet will record a live performance with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. Only participating record shops will sell the double LP, which was initially recorded in 2016 and includes the songs Somebody Else, Chocolate, and The Sound. The 1975's fifth studio album, Being Funny In A Foreign Language, was released at 2017 on a limited-edition white vinyl that was exclusively available in record stores. This swiftly rose to the top of the charts in the UK in 2022, a year in which vinyl overtook CDs for the first time in 35 years in terms of sales. Record Store Day, now in its 16th year, will be celebrated in hundreds of stores throughout the UK. Previous ambassadors have included artists including Taylor Swift, Noel Gallagher, The Big Moon, and Sir Elton John.

“The guys and I are really proud to be ambassadors for Record Store Day this year,” said the band’s lead Matty Healy. “Independent record stores are the lifeblood of the music industry and have played a crucial role in our story so far. It couldn’t be more important to support their vital community and culture.” 

Louise Jackson from Wax And Beans, based in Bury just outside The 1975’s native Manchester, said: “We can’t wait to be taking part in Record Store Day again this year, and to have a Manchester band like the 1975 putting our local musical heritage on the map and celebrating the culture of record shops in this way is fantastic. 

“Like all the stores involved in the day, we work incredibly hard all year round to keep our shop thriving as a hub for the music-loving community. Bands like The 1975 are a product of independent music scenes like ours all over the country who back emerging talent, so it feels great to see them championing indie record shops just like ours in such a meaningful way.”
