The full list of releases for Record Store Day 2013 will be announced next Thursday (March 21) at a launch event in London.

Brit Award winner Tom Odell and Ghostpoet will play at London's Rough Trade East as part of the launch, which will also feature a DJ set from Benga. The first look at several hundred exclusive Record Store Day releases will also be unveiled on the night.

This years' Record Store Day will take place on April 20. The annual event, which began in 2007, will see over 200 independent record shops over the UK are Ireland taking part. They will not only stock a raft of exclusive releases on the day, but many will host instore gigs and other promotions.

UK Record Store Day co-ordinator Spencer Hickman said in a statement: "Record Store Day has now become an established part of the music calendar. What makes it special is the character and individuality of record stores. There’s nothing to beat the enthusiasm and atmosphere of a great record shop. The reason great indie stores succeed is that they love music as much as their customers do. Record Store Day is like one huge festival taking place in every part of the UK."

Record Store Day is organised by the Entertainment Retailers Association and supported this year by Clarks Originals, who have created a collection of limited edition vinyl desert boots to mark the day. Paul Quirk Chairman of ERA said: "However big and glossy and commercialised the entertainment business becomes, it is vital that we support the grassroots record stores who day-in, day-out help break new artists and support emerging talent."
