On the 20th anniversary of the much beloved Elliot Smith LP Either/Or, an expanded version will be released. The March 10th release date will see five new live tracks and four unreleased rarities that have been dug up.
This is the first new music that will have been released by Elliott Smith’s estate in seven years. It follows remastered editions of both Roman Candle and From a Basement on the Hill, where his former label put out a free download of a previously unreleased song titled “Cecilia/Amanda.”
“I Figured You Out,” released today, was originally recorded in 1995 but remastered by recording engineer and archivist Larry Crane. The other tracks that will appear on the reissue are “New Monkey (keys),” “I Don’t Think I’m Ever Gonna Figure It Out,” and “Bottle Up And Explode.” The live songs were recorded in 1997 at Yo Yo A Go Go Festival in Olympia, WA.
