24 Elliott Smith Recordings To Be Released

February 14, 2007  |  2:14pm

Fans of Elliott Smith may have resigned themselves to the fact that they’d never again hear new material from the mournful tunesmith after the posthumous release of 2004’s From a Basement on the Hill. But chin up! Kill Rock Stars has announced the release of New Moon, a two-disc collection of songs Smith recorded from 1995-1997, the same prolific writing/recording time during which he recorded his second and third albums, Elliott Smith and Either/Or. Both were released by Kill Rock Stars.

New Moon is set for release on CD and double LP on May 8th, 2007. A portion of proceeds from the album’s sales will go to Outside In, a Portland, Ore.-based group that provides services to homeless and low-income youth and young adults.

Smith died in Los Angeles on October 21st, 2003, of as-yet-undetermined causes.
