National Album Day will return for its fourth edition on Saturday, 16th October and this year will take as its theme Celebrating Women in Music, shining a light on the huge contribution made by women and female-identifying artists to our music and culture through the art form of the album.
We love National Album Day at Cherry Red and in the coming weeks will be announcing our special plans for releases to celebrate the day.
This year’s Celebrating Women in Music themed National Album Day creates the perfect opportunity to revisit iconic and influential albums by best-selling women and female-identified artists; from the unique, diverse and contemporary acts of the present day and throughout the history of recorded music, spanning all genres and decades. It will also point to the exciting women artists of tomorrow, and highlight the role of women within the wider music community, including songwriters and producers, as well as featured artists and performers.
Since its launch in 2018, National Album Day has been supported by a diverse range of artists and musicians including Lewis Capaldi, Mark Ronson, La Roux, Elbow, Paloma Faith, Blossoms, Kim & Marty Wilde, Billy Ocean, Alice Cooper, Novelist, Tom Odell, Mahalia, Toyah Willcox, Jazzie B and Orbital among many others, and has hosted a variety of events and activities including Classic Album Sunday and Tape Notes events, in-store artist appearances, record store promotions, and two Network Rail exhibitions in major cities across the UK.
