National Album Day 2020

National Album Day 2020

This year, the third National Album Day takes place on Saturday 10th October with the theme this year being the 80s.

There’s going to be a week-long build-up of activities across the country celebrating the album as a format involving amazing talent which spans artists, songwriters, producers, labels, retailers, sleeve designers and the great British public too!

Pat Howe, Head of Sales at Proper commented “We are very pleased and proud that La Roux is one of this year’s ambassadors as we released her latest album ‘Supervision’. La Roux is a good example of a modern artist who can talk about the partial influence of musicians from that period and how she has been able to take inspiration from what was an exciting time of development in popular music.” he continued “The objective is to take pride in the artistic worth of ‘the album’ and to celebrate that by provoking a national dialogue about music.”

We’ve enjoyed over 70 years of albums; classic, life-changing, first, influential and even the ones we couldn’t live without. Albums mean different things to different people – but there is no denying the huge impact they’ve not only had on our lives but on British pop-culture as we know it.

There are lots of ways to celebrate National Album Day, from hosting album listening parties, going record shopping with friends, attending live album playbacks or just rejoicing in your record collection and telling us all about the albums you cherish and love.

Be part of the national conversation and join in by sharing the albums you love by posting to socials and tagging @AlbumDayUK
