National Album Day 2023: Full list of iconic 90s albums included in the drop
National Album Day is upon us once again for 2023. Taking place on Saturday October 14, this year's National Album Day theme is all about the iconic albums of the 1990s, from a decade that birthed generation-defining classics from the likes of Spice Girls and Radiohead.
And true to its name, some of the most important albums of the decade are being re-released for National Album Day this year; including debut albums by Melanie C (Northern Star) and Gabrielle (Rise) and even the only album released by celebrated singer-songwriter Jeff Buckley in his own lifetime (Grace).
It will also include drops from the likes of Blur (Modern Life is Rubbish), Dannii Minogue (Girl), Bob Dylan (Time Out of Mind) and Cool Cymru band Catatonia (International Velvet).
As part of the celebrations for the 75 year since the birth of album format, National Album Day is presented in association with official audio partner Bowers & Wilkins and official broadcast partner BBC Sounds. Last week, Gabrielle, Declan McKenna, Tricky and Nuno Bettencourt were announced as this year’s NAD artist ambassadors.
Since its launch in 2018, NAD has been supported by a broad range of artist ambassadors, including Kylie Minogue, Joy Crookes, Sharleen Spiteri, Lewis Capaldi, Mark Ronson, La Roux, Elbow, Paloma Faith, Blossoms, Alice Cooper, Novelist, Tom Odell, Mahalia, Toyah Willcox and Jazzie B. Last year Franz Ferdinand, India Arkin, KSI, The Mysterines, Sam Ryder, and The Staves were the latest talents to add their voices as passionate advocates of the album as an art form.
