St. Vincent, non-stage name Anne Clark, stated “It is with deep honor and humility that I accept this ambassadorship. Rest assured I do not take my duties lightly.”
Carrie Colliton, RSD co-founder states, “Being the Ambassador of Record Store Day is meant to be fun and a little silly, and I think it’s fantastic that we’re celebrating this year with a woman who can be both those things while being a respected musician and record store regular as well. It’s a damn good fit.”
The Record Store Day exclusives are yet to be revealed, but expect them soon.
