The success of Record Store Day caused people to ask, “how do we do this all year round?” The answer, Third Option. The Third Option includes a button graphic, along with backend programming which uses geolocation to find the nearest independent record stores participating in the program, allowing people to BUY LOCAL FROM A RECORD STORE in one of three ways: PHYSICALLY, finding the closest store to walk into; MAIL ORDER, finding the closest store who fill the order and mail it out; and DIGITALLY, with per-song and album options from Record Store Day.
The Third Option launches with many artists committing to include the “BUY LOCAL FROM A RECORD STORE button on their sites shortly including Wilco, Mastodon, The Civil Wars, Sinead O’Connor, Josh Groban, Gary Clark, Jr., Anthrax, Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold, Jack’s Mannequin, The Vespers, Rebelution, Lovedrug, Green River Ordinance, Butterfly Boucher, Sugar and the Hi Lows, Rosie Thomas, Katie Herzig, and none other than Bruce Springsteen.
We are proud to have Sinead O’Connor’s How About I Be Me (and you be you) and Anthrax’s Worship Music participating in the Program. Please click on the links below to purchase the releases via local record stores.
