Saturday on Instagram, Swift said she is “honored to be this year’s Global Ambassador and glad we get to celebrate these sacred and important places now more than ever.”
The star released a two-sided 7-inch clear vinyl record containing two versions of her song “The Lakes” from her 2020 album “Folklore.” Only 10,000 copies of the vinyl are available.
More than 300 new releases go on sale Saturday. Other artists releasing special-edition vinyl recordings to mark the occasion include Madonna, Blondie, Mariah Carey, Childish Gambino, the Foo Fighters, and Kacey Musgraves.
Some are printed on colored vinyl, including a 50th anniversary release of “More Hot Rocks (Big Hits & Fazed Cookies)” by the Rolling Stones on glow-in-the-dark vinyl, and Nicki Minaj’s “Beam Me Up Scotty” issued on a marbled fuchsia vinyl.
Some releases also include rare cuts. “The Brilliant Adventure EP” features four previously unreleased songs by the late David Bowie.
