Elliott Smith ‘Introduction to’ due…

Rather than be labelled as a ‘Greatest Hits’, an ‘Introduction to‘ compilation of some of Elliott Smith’s more accessible tracks spawning across all seven albums seems more appropriate for a release in honour of one of the world’s most revered songwriters.

The album will feature fourteen tracks that will serve as an introduction to the late Elliott Smith for those music lovers out there who aren’t already a fan, opening the gates to an extensive back catalogue of songs that summon a perfect blend of melancholic world-weariness and optimistic melody.

The tracklisting is as follows:

1 Ballad of Big Nothing – from Either/Or
2. Waltz #2 – from XO
3. Pictures of Me – from Either/Or
4. The Biggest Lie – from Elliott Smith
5. Alameda – from Either/Or
6. Between The Bars – from Either/Or
7.Needle In The Hay – from Elliott Smith
8. Last Call – from Roman Candle
9.Angles – from Either/Or
10. Twilight – from From a Basement on the Hill
11.Pretty (Ugly Before) – from From a Basement on the Hill
12. Angel In the Snow – from New Moon
13. Miss Misery (early version) – from New Moon
14. Happiness (single version) – from Figure 8

The album will be released on November 1st through Domino.
