They have shared free streams of ‘Golden’ and ‘Mahgeetah’ from the remixed and remastered album;
The album will include frontman Jim James’ 10 original demos plus three unreleased tracks. Their long-time friend Kevin Ratterman helped to retweak the old material. It was remastered by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering.
“Everybody can relate to something they’ve done in their life where you didn’t know it at the time, but you were rushed through finishing it,” James said in a statement.
He said the band’s aggressive touring schedule at the time is the reason why it was left incomplete. When ATO approached James about reissuing the album for the label’s fifteenth anniversary, he took the time to improve the album.
The acoustic versions of the songs provide a snapshot of the way that James still writes his songs.
“I feel lucky to have had so many songs that feel like there are chances to go in other directions,”he said.
“It definitely feels more lonely,” he said of writing songs in his bedroom. “Maybe more haunting.”
It Still Moves served as the conclusion to an unofficially trilogy of the band’s first three albums that saw them reconfiguring their line-up.
