Nouns with several terms

He has gone to the new music shop on St. Michael’s Street:
• Ha ido a la nueva tienda de música de la Calle San Miguel.

I am struggling to find a different way to express 'new music shop' in Spanish.
Any help would be hugely appreciated.

I know we can't separate tienda and música, and I know we can't put nueva after tienda de música. Would 'la tienda de música que abrió sus puertas hace poco' suffice?

Many thanks.

nueva tienda de música is quite OK, yet slightly formal

la tienda de música que abrió hace poco is more fluid and natural

... abrió sus puertas ... gives it that slightly formal aspect again, as hace poco is enough to avoid any ambiguity between starting a business and the business' opening hours.
