Record Store Day with 4AD: Daughter & The National
Daughter’s original music score for the video game Life Is Strange: Before The Storm, will be given an official vinyl release as part of Record Store Day. Music from Before The Storm, which was released digitally last year to coincide with the game’s release, will be made available as a limited-edition double-LP with a gatefold sleeve, and features additional artwork by Lindsay McDonagh.
Before The Storm is the prequel to Life Is Strange, the hugely successful BAFTA award-winning narrative driven game released in 2015. Boundary-breaking, with principal characters tackling real life issues such as bullying, suicide and teen pregnancy, the episodic series has garnered plaudits, whilst Daughter’s soundtrack was celebrated by both music and videogame fans.

GRAMMY-winning band The National are pleased to announce a very special Record Store Day release – a live recording of their seminal album, Boxer. On November 9th, 2017, The National wrapped up their European tour by performing the album in its entirety, celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Boxer‘s debut. Now, Boxer (Live In Brussels) will be released on vinyl on 21st April.
Released in 2007, Boxer received widespread critical acclaim and landed the band in the Billboard Top 200 for the first in their career. The album went on to sell over 430,000 copies in the U.S. alone. The track ‘Fake Empire‘ was used widely by Barack Obama throughout his presidential campaign the following year.
On 28th and 29th April in their hometown of Cincinnati, OH, The National will host their inaugural Homecoming festival. The line-up includes Father John Misty, Feist, The Breeders, Future Islands and more, and the band will perform an encore presentation of Boxer live.
