The National Plan High Violet Expanded Edition

 

Earlier this year, Brooklyn brooders the National released their album High Violet, which debuted in Billboard's top five and scored a BNM from us. As a victory lap, the National will take theirs on November 22, when 4AD will release a two-disc expanded edition of High Violet.

 

The new edition of the album will feature the original LP on one disc, and another disc with eight bonus tracks-- unreleased songs (like "You Were a Kindness"), live tracks, B-sides, and an alternate version of "Terrible Love". We've got the tracklist below.

 

Also on November 22, the National will release the "Terrible Love" 7" on 4AD. "You Were a Kindness" will be the B-side. And in other National news, tonight in Madison, Wisconsin, the band will play a rally in support of President Obama at the University of Wisconsin, as the 4AD website reports.

My main issue with it is this: the bonus songs are usually tracks that only true fans are going to care about. And chances are true fans have already purchased the album. It's kind of arrogant to think all your fans will buy your album twice.

yeah I agree. it reminds me of when Radiohead re-released all of their albums (though emi did it without the band knowing). Instead I decided to just buy the songs I didn't have off iTunes, so I'll do the same here (so long as the album isn't Album Only)
