To celebrate Record Store Day this year, Public Enemy will be putting out a limited edition “Harder Than You Think” picture disc. Only 500 copies of the vinyl will be available so collectors should be first in line at their local record store on April 18th.
Chuck D has been a long time ambassador of Record Store Day and was even named the official Record Store Day Ambassador of 2014’s celebration. He told Billboard Magazine this about the annual event.
“The record store made musicians listen beyond themselves, it both complemented and supplemented the radio, in fact the best radio stations in the past followed the vibe of the record stores of their regions, thus growing and nurturing each other. The fans and listener had everything to gain, and if they wanted to get into making music, the Record Store turned into their first school and sonic passport out.”
