MUSIC NEWS: While She Sleeps Announce ‘You Are We Special Edition’
While She Sleeps will release a special edition version of their latest album You Are We on the 20th July.
The re-release will include the original 11 album tracks, alongside unheard demos and alternative material that was recorded at the band’s stripped back show at London’s St Pancras Old Church.
“We feel that You Are We demonstrated such a special connection between us and our fans so we wanted to give them the chance to receive as much content as possible from the campaign,” says guitarist Sean Long. “We, even as a “heavy” band, have always had a strong love for acoustic and stripped backed songs so it made sense to finally realise some of our songs in this way. The St Pancras show was so much out of our comfort zone that it made the night electric.
‘Lost Ideas’ is something people never get to hear yet I think it’s so pure and interesting. It’s from the absolute beginning of the writing process and you get to hear the essence of some of our biggest songs in their simplest and most organic form. It also includes some natural ideas that never made it into any of the songs on ‘You Are We’ itself. This is something I would have loved to hear from my favourite artists over the years so I’m happy we are giving our fans this chance.”
