Hiss Golden Messenger: Box Set - Title TBC

On November 2, Hiss Golden Messenger will release Devotion: Songs About Rivers and Spirits and Children, a limited-edition deluxe box set which includes remastered reissues of the classic Hiss albums Bad Debt, Poor Moon, and Haw as well as Virgo Fool, a rarities compilation that will only be available physically as part of this collection. Both the 4-CD and 4- LP sets are housed in a cloth-wrapped, foil-stamped slipcase and feature original iconographic artwork by Sam Smith, an exclusive foldout poster, full lyrics, and new liner notes by New Yorker writer Amanda Petrusich and MOJO editor John Mulvey. The vinyl set also includes a digital download of all tracks.

"Come the brightest, brightest day, the north wind's gonna be a friend of mine."

Excerpts from the Devotion liner notes: What struck me about Hiss Golden Messenger-and my absorption in these early records was instantaneous-is that Taylor's songs are completely and unfailingly honest about how stupid and frustrating it is to be a person. But then, of course, he finds magnificence anyway: "Hallelujah anyhow" is how he put it later.
