Like just about everything else, Record Store Day was forced to delay its 2020 event due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now, organizers have detailed plans for a new version of the special shopping event, which will now be spread out over three different days.

The 2020 edition of the festival has been rebranded as RSD Drops. The Record Store Day releases will be unleashed on one of three RSD Drops days. Those days are August 29, September 26 and October 24.

"No one knows what kind of party we'll all be in the mood for, or able to hold safely, at any time this year, in any part of the world," the organization explained. "So we're focusing this year not on the party aspect of Record Store Day, but on getting the great releases on the RSD 2020 List into your local record store, and then into your collection."

Which records from the official RSD list will appear on which day is yet to be confirmed, so stay tuned.
