Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Album Day.

National Album Day was first celebrated in 2018 to praise the album format.

After all, we've enjoyed over 70 years of albums; classic, life-changing, first, influential and even the ones we couldn't live without.

Albums mean different things to different people – but there is no denying the huge impact they’ve not only had on our lives but on British pop-culture as we know it. 

National Album Day aims to shine a light on the art form of the album, celebrating the creativity and artistry that goes into making an album. The Debut Albums theme will look to showcase a broad range of first album releases across multiple genres and decades – from debut recordings that have gone on to become classics to those that are perhaps only now being fully appreciated or which, years later, merit reappraisal.

National Album Day is presented in association with official audio partner Bowers & Wilkins and official broadcast partner BBC Sounds, and will celebrate the artists behind these significant and influential bodies of work. Artist ambassadors, product and releases, events and other activities will be announced in due course alongside further updates.

Since its launch in 2018, National Album Day has been supported by a diverse range of artists and musicians including Kylie Minogue, Joy Crookes, Sharleen Spiteri, Ray BLK, Lewis Capaldi, Mark Ronson, La Roux, Elbow, Paloma Faith, Blossoms, Alice Cooper, Novelist, Tom Odell, Mahalia, Toyah Willcox and Jazzie B among others.
