It’s time for another edition of Put The Needle On It.
Inspired by last year’s Record Store Day and the fragmented vinyl drop schedule amid the pandemic, I’m continuing to do round-ups of some of the upcoming vinyl releases and pre-orders that have caught my eye, which MuuMuse readers would more than likely enjoy getting their hands on, too. (No, Rachel Stevens‘ Come & Get It still hasn’t been rereleased on vinyl. The fight continues.)
This month’s round-up is full of yuh, a sprinkle of oh me oh my, and a whole lot of woo hoo…yee hoo.
Make sure to let me know which upcoming releases you’re looking forward to grabbing for yourself in the comments. Happy hunting!

This is one of those instances of the kids getting it right on TikTok: a Japanese city-pop 1979 hit goes incredibly viral among the youths, leading to a posthumous vinyl re-release. It’s a gorgeous, instantly nostalgic tune, and you might recognize the chorus from your FYP.
