Kill Rock Stars are to release a double-disc collection of rare Elliott Smith material later this year.
New Moon features a variety of songs taken from 1995 to 1997; during that period Kill Rock Stars released both Smith's self-titled LP and Either/Or, the album that ultimately brought his talents to a wider audience. Both are available on Domino in the UK, who will also handle the domestic release of New Moon.
The tracklisting for New Moon, released on May 7 in the States, looks a lot like this:
'Angel in the Snow'
'Talking to Mary'
'Looking Over My Shoulder'
'All Cleaned Out'
'Miss Misery' (Early Version)
'Whatever (Folk Song in C)'
'Seen How Things Are Hard'
'Pretty Mary K' (Other Version)
'See You Later'
A portion of the record's profits will go to Outside In, a service based in Portland which helps homeless youths.
