Anthony Albanese Hands Over Record Store Ambassadorship

Anthony Albanese MP and 2017 Ambassador for Record Store Day Australia has officially passed to baton to 2018 ambassadors Michael Chugg, Amber Lawrence and Dan Sultan.

The 11th annual Record Store Day will take place across Australia on 21 April 2018. The day is a celebration of the culture of collecting music and an opportunity for fans to add some rare releases to their collections.

Anthony Albanese, the former deputy Prime Minister of Australia and current member for Grayndler, was a huge supporter of the Australian music industry and fan of Australian music.

“MUSIC is a part of us,” he said in 2017. “Like literature, it speaks to us about who we are, where we have been and how we understand our journey through life. It’s one of our key forms of expression.

“That is why independent record stores have a very special place in our culture, a place that will be celebrated on International Record Store Day on Saturday”.

“Australian independent record stores also play a critical role in local communities,” Albo says. “The musical development of just about all professional musicians in this country would have been very much influenced by their patronage of independent stores”.

Record Store Day Australia will feature some firsts for fans. Tumbleweed’s debut album will be released for the first time ever on vinyl, Courtney Barnett will put out a 12 inch of ‘City Looks Pretty’ with unreleased track ‘Sunday Roast’ and albums by Black Sorrows, Dragon and Eurogliders will be on vinyl again.
