The Weather Station has shared the deluxe edition of her new album ‘Ignorance’featuring live versions of some songs on the original album as well as new songs, “Look” and “Better Now.” A 2xLP set for the project is set to arrive on November 19 via Fat Possum.
You can now stream the deluxe as well as the new songs “Look” and “Better Now” on digital streaming platforms. Speaking on one of the songs, ‘Better Now,’ she said:
“I wrote ‘Better Now’ in Banff, Alberta, in stolen moments as I was teaching songwriting and writing for myself,” Tamara Lindeman said in a statement. “It’s all just true; the mountains, the piano, the first line, the pain of being hurt and the joy of being alright anyways.”
Ignorance was also shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize, which ultimately went to Cadence Weapon for Parallel Worlds. Lindeman and her band resume their North American tour in November; they hit Europe in Spring 2022.
Speaking on the new deluxe, The Weather Station says:
“Whenever you make anything, you have to leave things out; it’s a critical part of the process, but a painful one nonetheless. I’m glad to have the opportunity to revisit the paths not taken, and allow some of them out after all; quiet versions of songs that were redirected into rhythm, two of the songs we recorded but left off the album, and some live versions of the songs that have come to be since the recording.”
“It has been overwhelming to have this album be so lovingly received, and it is wonderful to have the space to release more of it into the world.”
