New year. New approach.

Starting this Friday, we’re making it easy to identify the most exciting albums newly available.

A simple edit - Rough Trade Edit - will showcase the new and recent recordings worthy of attention, updated weekly.

Ever since our first day of trading back in 1976, we’ve always championed great new music irrespective of an artists level of popularity, so rest assured that each album featured in Rough Trade Edit will continue to shine a light on artists and creators, from the familiar to the unknown.

Our absolute favourite LP from each calendar month - our Album of the Month - will continue to be showcased and can be found within our Rough Trade Edit. Unsurprisingly, you’ll find Rough Trade Edit titles in all our stores, on our website, in our weekly newsletter.

COMING SOON - enjoy our new weekly updated Rough Trade Edit playlist, only available at Apple Music, and podcast show featuring the latest tracks, behind-the-counter chat and artist interviews.

Let us know what you think, @RoughTrade and @RoughTradeNYC on Instagram and Twitter.

And don't forget to sign up to our newsletter, to receive our Rough Trade Edit direct to your inbox!
