Elliott Smith’s XO and Figure 8 released as digital deluxe editions
In celebration of what would’ve been the late singer-songwriter Elliott Smith’s 50th birthday, his seminal XO and Figure 8 albums have been released as digital deluxe editions.
These bolstered releases include rarities, B-sides and demos. The new XO features nine added tracks, including an early version of Bottle Up And Explode!, a remix of Baby Britain, and Miss Misery, Smith’s oscar-nominated track for the film Good Will Hunting.
Figure 8 on the other hand has been beefed up with seven tracks. Included in this version is a cover of Schoolhouse Rock!’s Figure 8, which originally only appeared on the Japanese edition of Smith’s album. There’s also a cover of the Beatles’ Because on the new release which featured on the 1999 American Beauty soundtrack.
