Postal Service’s ‘Give Up: 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition’ out Today; Watch This Thing About It!

Today is only the second day in the entire history of the world that The Postal Service’s now classic debut/only record, Give Up has been released—only the second! Just two days in history dedicated to a release with such notable import? It seems tragically unfair, but such is the way release dates work—upon second thought, I guess that most records only see one release day, and only the very special ones get two. Well, today is one of those special days, a day in which The Postal Service and Sub Pop renew our vows, so to speak. What makes the Give Up: 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition special? I’m glad that I presumed you asked. This triple LP/double CD version of the album has 15 bonus tracks, including two brand new Postal Service songs.
