Record Store Day returns to independent record stores around the country this Saturday, April 13. As customary every year for the commerce-themed holiday, artists across all genres have worked with their labels and various stores on providing fans with exclusive releases to be sold in select locations.
Lord Huron have now added themselves to list of artists who are planning a special release this Saturday, as the popular folk-rock band announced on Tuesday that they will release a limited edition, 7-inch single of their hit 2017 single, “The Night We Met,” which features contributions from emerging rock guitarist and singer, Phoebe Bridgers. The band didn’t go into detail as to which stores around the country will sell this exclusive collaborative release, aside from stating that fans can pick up their copy at “your local participating vinyl shop and give ‘er a spin.”
The song was initially included on the band’s 2015 studio album, Strange Trails, and re-emerged as a hit folk ballad for the band after it was featured on the popular 2017 Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why. The song has since been certified with Platinum sales status in the United States, and peaked at No. 5 on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs chart in the U.S.
Lord Huron returned last year with the release of their third studio album, Vide Noir, which arrived back on April 20 via Republic Records and Whispering Pines. The band continues to tour in promotion of the album, and are currently on the road performing across North America throughout the spring months of April and May before carrying on well into summer.

As for Bridgers, she’s kept herself busy throughout the winter months by touring alongside Conor Oberst with their new Better Oblivion Community Center collaboration project. The band will wrap the North American leg of their 2019 tour this week with scheduled shows in Dallas, Santa Fe and Phoenix. Fans can also catch Bridgers when she appears at David Lynch’s Festival of Disruption event at Brooklyn Steel in New York City on May 18, along with artists like Garbage and LCD Soundsystem’s Nancy Whang.
