Wilco, Hole, MGMT and Monsters of Folk are the latest artists to contribute exclusive releases for this year's Record Store Day, which will arrive at independent music shops this Saturday, April 17th. Wilco will offer up their live album Kicking Television as a deluxe vinyl box set complete with four LPs, eight extra tracks not on the original release and a bonus CD. Only 1,000 of the reissued Kicking Television will be made, so make sure to be first in line this Saturday if you want one of those.
MGMT will release their 12-minute Congratulations track "Siberian Breaks" as a 12'' single with an etched second side and Hole will make available "Skinny Little Bitch" and another new track off of Nobody's Daughter on 10" white vinyl. As Rolling Stone previously reported, the Rolling Stones, Soundgarden, the Doors, Sonic Youth, Bruce Springsteen, Flaming Lips and countless more will provide exclusive releases for Record Store Day while U.K. shops will get limited-edition singles from the likes of the Beatles and Blur, who recorded their first song together since Think Tank for the occasion.
Check out the entire list of Record Store Day exclusives for U.S. shops at the event's official site. One of the more intriguing releases is a "super surprise" white label 12" single from the Beastie Boys. With a limited run of 1,000 copies, the white label may feature some tracks off the Beasties' upcoming album Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 1.
Smashing Pumpkins will also unveil their newest song "Astral Planes" as a free download through the Amoeba Records website starting tomorrow in anticipation to Billy Corgan and Co.'s Record Store Day performance this weekend at Amoeba. Rolling Stone will be on the scene at the extremely tiny show (only 250 fans will score a wristband), so check back for our full report.
