National Album Day 2021 will celebrate women in music.

This year’s National Album Day is “a celebration of women in music”, and we love to see it.

The fourth National Album Day takes place on 16 October, and it will see the release of limited edition versions of classic albums by iconic women.

This includes Kylie Minogue, Mariah Carey, Stevie Nicks, Amy Winehouse, Solange, Donna Summer and Joan Jett, to name a few.

There’s 40 titles being revisited and revamped for National Album Day, with some vinyl having sold-out already due to demand.

Kylie – who is also an ambassador for the event – is re-releasing her iconic album Fever on silver disc vinyl, but fans have snapped it up from her official website, Amazon and HMV.

Other albums that are proving popular, and close to selling out, include Mariah Carey’s Emotions on pink vinyl, Dido’s No Angel on silver vinyl and Weyes Blood’s Titanic Rising on yellow vinyl.

There’s still a chance to get your hands on the majority of titles online and in-store, including HMV and Rough Trade, who have dedicated pages to National Album Day.
