Taylor Swift Becomes First Global Ambassador For Record Store Day

Thursday, 20 January 2022 Written by Laura Johnson

Taylor Swift has become the first global amabassador for Record Store Day.

In 2022, the event will fall on April 23, marking its 15th annual celebration. Reacting to her appointment, Swift said:

"I’m very proud to be this year's Global Ambassador for Record Store Day. The places where we go to browse and explore and discover music new and old have always been sacred to me. Record stores are so important because they help to perpetuate and foster music-loving as a passion. They create settings for live events. They employ people who adore music thoroughly and purely. Those people and shops have had a rough few years and we need to support these small businesses more now than ever to make sure they can stay alive, stay eccentric, and stay individual. It’s been a true joy for me to watch vinyl sales grow in the past few years and we, the artists, have the fans to thank for this pleasant surprise. Happy Record Store Day, everyone! Stay safe out there."

The superstar singer-songwriter released 'Red (Taylor's Version)' in November, following up her two 2020 LPs, 'Folklore' and 'Evermore'. It's the latest of her back catalogue to be re-recorded, a project she undertook after her discography was sold by her previous label to Scooter Braun, a move she publicly denounced.

Last year, Noel Gallagher served as the British ambassador for Record Store Day, while Fred Armisen took the title in the US.

A full list of Record Store Day releases is yet to be announced, but will be updated here.
