Here’s the official release schedule for the New Pornographers’ so-called “Buy Early, Get Now” Executive Edition box set, via today’s Matador Records newsletter.
If they’d told me this in June, there’s not a chance in hell I would have done it.
Those who’ve participated in the Buy Early Get Now scheme for
‘Challengers’ have been wondering (rightfully so) what’s up with the
bonus downloads? The schedule (subject to change, just like your
voice) looks something like this:
*SCHEDULE OF DOWNLOADS*
July 4th – The Speed of Luxury (B-Side)
Aug 3rd – Silent Systems (B-Side)
Aug 28th – Fortune (iTunes pre-order B-Side)
September 11 – 3 demos – Showstoppers, Failsafe and Myriad Harbour
September 25 – Alternate mix of “Go Places”
October – Challengers video and photos
November – ‘Live From The Future’, Fugue States (iTunes album-only
B-Side) and photos
Never again, guys, never again.
