The annual Record Store Day has become a rally to arms for locally owned music shops across the nation, but this year the event is getting a wicked cool sci-fi twist.
It’s common for extremely-limited-edition vinyl releases from participating bands to pop up at different stores to help raise awareness and provide a treat for music fans — but this year will bring a blast from the past for Ghostbusters fans.
Among the ultra-limited releases this year? 1,000 glow-in-the-dark copies of Ray Parker Jr.’s iconic Ghostbusters theme song, complete with an instrumental version, a 12” dance remix version and a dubstep version. Forget Ghostbusters 3, we want this.
The pressing will be released on April 19 at participating record stores. Head over to the event’s official website for a list of participating shops. Of course, along with the Ghostbusters release, Record Store Day will also feature vinyl exclusives from acts such as Bastille, Cage the Elephant, David Bowie, The Flaming Lips, Kings of Leon, the Pixies and 100+ other bands.
