The Gaslight Anthem Celebrate Landmark Anniversary With New Music
The Gaslight Anthem's landmark second studio album, The '59 Sound, has turned 10, and the band are celebrating with the release of The '59 Sound Sessions, a companion to the classic album featuring nine rare and previously unreleased songs, as well as an all-new 60-page booklet. The release will be available digitally and physically as CD, LP, and Limited Deluxe Photbook LP via SideOneDummy Records on Friday, June 15th.
The '59 Sound Sessions will include the first-ever release of songs recorded in the months leading up to the original albums recording, including cult favourites like 'Great Expectations', 'Miles Davis & The Cool' and the milestone title track. It will also include rarities, such as the previously unheard 'Placeholder', 'Our Fathers Son' (last heard on The Gaslight Anthem's 2011 iTunes Session), and a singular cover of the folk tradition, 'God's Gonna Cut You Down', made famous by legends such as Odetta and Johnny Cash. “The journey a band goes through is complex,” says The Gaslight Anthem’s Benny Horowitz in The ’59 Sound Sessions’ accompanying Photobook. “We were perpetually on the road and in a state of constant motion. I can’t think of a better time to try and create the most significant thing of your life when it was the most significant time of all our lives. I’m so happy to share this moment of our existence."
