The 2020 installment of Record Store Day had originally been scheduled to take place on April 18. Last month the worldwide event was postponed due to the global pandemic with a new date of June 20. Now, RSD 2020 will take place over the course of three separate dates: August 29, September 26, and October 24.

A statement from organizers reads as follows:

"Record Store Day is social distancing! 2020 is different. So what we're doing this year is going to be different too.

"No one knows what kind of party we'll all be in the mood for, or able to hold safely, at any time this year, in any part of the world. So we're focusing this year not on the party aspect of Record Store Day, but on getting the great releases on the RSD 2020 List into your local record store, and then into your collection.

"RSD Drops! Three street dates when titles from The List will be available only at participating indie record stores. We're working on getting the new version of The List -- with new RSD Drops dates -- all nice and pretty for you. Look for that on the Record Store Day site on June 1."
