It’s been a difficult task to try and wrap our collective head around the fact that it’s been a full decade since The Postal Service’s game-changing, and much to the chagrin of seemingly everyone, only record was released. A lot has changed since February of 2003 (including the fact that Give Up recently went platinum!), but one thing that’s remained constant, is how truly remarkable The Postal Service record, Give Up, is. That is certainly not lost on us, which is why Sub Pop is releasing a deluxe, 10th anniversary reissue of Give Up on April 9th. The deluxe version will feature 15 bonus tracks, including two brand new Postal Service songs, “Turn Around” and “A Tattered Line of String” (available here right now!). If there was ever record that deserved getting all deluxed up, it is most certainly this.
If you pre-order the 10th Anniversary Edition of Give Up from SubPop.com, you’ll receive a limited-edition Postal Service postcard set. We’re also giving people who pre-order the 3xLP vinyl version of the album the multi-colored, limited Loser Edition of Give Up. We’re also giving people who pre-order Give Up an instant download to the new song, “A Tattered Line of String”. And a note on limited-edition things: you’ve got to act quick to get yours.
Speaking of a tattered line of string, that decade-old Postal Service shirt you’ve been rocking is probably getting a little threadbare by now—not that you still don’t look good in it—it may just be time to re-up on your PS gear. We have two brand new Postal Service t-shirt designs to solve that problem. Here and here.
