Called ‘Exclusives Day,’ the music shop will initially select 30 of its favourite albums from the past 100 years. The first round of releases will be revealed throughout June, with further additions to the series planned for later in the year.
The event is an evolved version of HMV’s annual Vinyl Week, which similarly includes exclusives releases and a record sale.
Since re-opening its physical stores on 12th April, HMV has recorded a significant increase in customers, with over twice the number of visitors on its recent re-opening weekend compared to the re-opening weekend after the first lockdown in 2020, The Guardian reports.
Head here for more info on HMV’s ‘Exclusive Days’, and check back in June for the first batch of releases.
