Elliott Smith Collection Announced

Two-disc compilation New Moon will feature songs recorded between 1994-1997.

Record label Kill Rock Stars has announced the May 8 release of New Moon, a two-disc collection of songs by late melancholy pop troubadour Elliott Smith. Smith, who died in 2003, recorded all New Moon tunes between 1994-1997, the period he penned his definitive self-titled and Either/Or albums. Kill Rock Stars will also release New Moon on vinyl. An unspecified portion of the album’s profits will benefit Outside In, a Portland-based organization aiding homeless youth. To date, the coroner has been unable to determine the cause of Smith’s death, and the investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department remains open.
