Lumineers release exclusive vinyl for Record Store Day

Yes, it’s that time of the year again – Eggs and records are what April is all about – and to mark the occasion The Lumineers have announced the release of ‘Seeds’, an exclusive 10” vinyl set to be released in conjunction with Record Store Day which takes place. The limited edition release from the Denver-based outfit shows the progression of two of the most popular tracks from their No.1 sophomore album ‘Cleopatra’ (“Echo-laden, sparse Americana illuminated by Wesley Schultz’s remarkable voice” – so says the Evening Standard – just wait till George Osborne gets his hand on the music reviews) from initial demo, through recording to the live entity.  Discussing the release, Schultz says: “With ‘Angela’, you’ll hear how lyrics change and bridges and verses are moved around. And with ‘Long Way From Home’ you’ll hear an entire intro, i.e. a brand new part of the song that was omitted on the studio album, but can be heard in the live version.”  Here’s the full track list.

‘Seeds’ Track List:
Side A
1. Angela
2. Angela (Live)
3. Angela Seed (For Fra)
Side B
1. Long Way From Home
2. Long Way From Home (Live)
3. Long Way From Home Seed
