Every year for the past few, the people behind Record Store Day have been promoting a Black Friday offshoot that involves independent record stores selling limited-run exclusives on the day after Thanksgiving. This year’s offerings include a few that were just announced. As Pitchfork reports, Conor Oberst will release a 7″ single featuring two unreleased songs from his Upside Down Mountain sessions. Jenny Lewis has alternate versions of her The Voyager songs “Just One Of The Guys” and “You Can’t Outrun ‘Em,” which she recorded with producers Ryan Adams and Mike Viola. OutKast are selling a new green 10″ single version of their 1994 classic “Player’s Ball,” backed with a rare extended version of the song. Wu-Tang Clan are releasing “C.R.E.A.M.” as a picture-disc single cut into the shape of their W logo. The Flaming Lips are reissuing their rare Christmas album Atlas Eets Christmas, putting it on vinyl for the first time.
