The 20th anniversary deluxe edition of Death Cab for Cutie's The Photo Album — beautifully remastered by João Carvalho, cut for vinyl by Joe Nino-Hernes at Sterling Sound, and pressed at RTI on 180-gram CLEAR VINYL. Limited-edition gatefold package (5000 copies worldwide) also includes a bonus 12" EP with a new 33rpm Carvalho/Nino-Hernes master of The Stability E.P., and an 11.5" 12-page booklet and separate insert containing — for the first time in full size — all the photos from the original 1st pressing 2001 double-CD artwork. MP3 download has both releases, plus all the digital-only bonus tracks.

PLEASE NOTE: Wide-spread manufacturing delays and supply shortages have impacted our Spring 2022 timeline we originally set to get these LPs on your turntable. Just days after our pre-order sold out, and with the reissue jackets and inserts already printed and awaiting the vinyl pressing, we learned from our manufacturer that the pandemic had put them in a crisis situation, that they had accepted more orders than they were able to fulfill, and that their ability to complete orders would be delayed indefinitely. Now, with spring already here, we still don't have a clear date when they'll be able to press our vinyl. We remain hopeful that Photo Album LPs will be shipping soon, but as a backup plan, we now have press time held at another manufacturer in August, using the same master plates produced last fall before you pre-ordered the album. We're sympathetic to our manufacturer's situation, and they've always been known for doing excellent plating and pressing work — we'll only move the release if they're still unable to ship the records soon. The bottom line is that this release is going to sound, look and feel beautiful, and we think it will be worth the wait even if we can't get it to you in May or early June. We appreciate your patience!

Deluxe digital version, with all 35 tracks, is available starting October 29 on Bandcamp and all digital services, and includes previously-unavailable b-sides and compilation tracks, band demos, acoustic radio sessions, alternate lyrics, and never-before-heard studio outtakes from the era.
