Elliott Smith’s XO and Figure 8 Reissued With New Songs

To mark what would have been Elliott Smith’s 50th birthday (August 6), UMG has reissued XO and Figure 8 in expanded deluxe editions. The newly reissued albums include B-sides, rarities, and one-off singles, with XO getting nine new tracks and Figure 8 getting seven.

“Miss Misery,” Smith’s Oscar-nominated song from the Good Will Hunting soundtrack, is among the new additions to XO, as are new takes on “Waltz #1″ and “Waltz #2.” The deluxe edition of Figure 8 includes a Schoolhouse Rock cover called “Figure 8,” an acoustic “Son of Sam,” and 3 songs originally released on a French promo called 3 Titres Inedits: “I Can’t Answer You Anymore,” “Pretty Mary K (Alternate Version)” and “Happiness (Acoustic Version).”
