Scottish trio The Twilight Sad are reissuing their exhilarating debut album Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters forRecord Store Day on Saturday 19 April 2014 through FatCat Records.
The band are streaming previously unreleased track 'Untitled #4', which was part of the first demo CD they sent to FatCat Records in 2005 and one of the first songs they ever wrote.
The special intimate performance was part of The Spree Festival in Paisley, Scotland. Legendary conductor with the RSNO John Logan arranged the orchestration alongside classic The Twilight Sad tracks 'The Wrong Car', 'Sick', 'The Room' and 'Cold Days From The Birdhouse'. The 500 capacity venue sold out in less than an hour, with the band playing as a three-piece to give the orchestra as much space as possible.
The deluxe double vinyl edition of Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters will contain never-before-heard tracks, unseen original artwork and the remastered debut in full. The vinyl, limited to 500 copies in the UK, will be available from participating independent record shops on Record Store Day.
Frontman James Graham said of Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters: "We're very proud of our debut album. I've said this many times before but you only get one chance at making your first album and whilst ours didn't set the world on fire or sell hundreds of thousands of copies, I think it's a special record that means a lot to the people who have discovered it."
