Some albums were meant to be heard on vinyl. So Pretty is one of those albums, and that’s why we’re reissuing it as a 2LP on 180g of black vinyl. Originally released in 2002 on LOW’s record label, this reissue will include two previously unreleased tracks (Down to Get ’Em and Blackout) from the “So Pretty” sessions in the summer of 1999. The track listing will be as follows:
Down’ to Get ’Em (Up to Do ’Em)
So Pretty (4-track)
The Lonely Gogoljack (4-track version of The Overcoat)
Included with the double album will be a digital download code, which will include high resolution mp3s of all the songs on the double vinyl as well as 4-track demo versions of Bathroom, Pairin’ Off, Down to Get ‘Em (Up to Do ’Em), and Blackout. If you haven’t been keeping count, that’s sixteen total tracks.
In the store, you will find original, hand-written lyrics, notes from the sessions, original artwork, and promotional material from the release of the album in 2002. There will also be lots of new So Pretty swag and opportunities to have me and my band perform So Pretty for you and your friends!
I chose PledgeMusic for this campaign because it is a fabulous platform for sharing content with fans. Included with every pre-order, whether it be the AccessPass, or any other item (all of which include the AccessPass) are weekly videos of myself and others talking about the songs, the recording process, the artwork, etc. There will also be exclusive videos of me and others in the studio putting the finishing touches on the two unreleased tracks.
If this album has affected you, I hope you will share this campaign with your friends. This project would not be possible without your support, so thank you for making it happen!
