Jason Isbell Gives A Nod To Independent Record Stores With Early Album Release

Jason Isbell has opened sales of his new album Reunions a week early as a thank you to indie record stores and their customers for their years of support and to help them as they struggle during this challenging time of COVID-19. The album is only available through independent records stores like Schoolkids Records, and pre-orders are being taken now.

The 10-song album is scheduled for release May 15, and David Crosby and Rival Sons singer Jay Buchanan contribute to the new collection. Fans are able to purchase a special “Dreamsicle”-colored LP in celebration of a song on the album, as well as a standard LP and CD, and purchases will include a print of Isbell’s 1959 Gibson Les Paul “Red Eye.” The Record Store Day website offers options to search nearby indie record stores and preorder the album.

Isbell reflects on the upcoming project in a new profile in GQ magazine out today.
