Tween, the newly unveiled compilation album from Wye Oak, is now available on vinyl at Merge Records. The album was released digitally today (a bit of a surprise release), but vinyl and CD is coming August 5th. You can see the album description and a new song below:
Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack—the band’s two halves—described these songs as “not emblematic of a step forward, but a step sideways in time.” In other words, they just didn’t make sense for album number five—which will happen at some point in the future. But just because they didn’t belong there doesn’t mean they don’t belong anywhere. To wedge them onto Shriek would’ve been dishonest; to orphan them would’ve been somewhere on the line between criminal and just plain silly.
