Taylor Swift has been named the Global Ambassador for Record Store Day, which takes place this year on April 23.
“I’m very proud to be this year’s Ambassador for Record Store Day,” Swift said in a press release. “The places where we go to browse and explore and discover music new and old have always been sacred to me.”
She added, “Record stores are so important because they help to perpetuate and foster music-loving as a passion.”
Taylor will drop a “special RSD 2022 release” in honor of the holiday’s 15th celebration, according to the press release.
Previously, Pearl Jam, Brandi Carlile, and Fred Armisen all served as ambassadors for the United States, but Taylor Swift is the first artist to be named a “global” ambassador.
