The Shins have confirmed the November 23 release of a limited edition 7-inch vinyl single, to be available exclusively at select retailers as part of this year’s Black Friday Record Store Day event. The single will feature the Swift Sessions versions of “No Way Down” and “Fall of 82,” alternate versions of the tracks from The Shins’ current album, Port of Morrow (Aural Apothecary/Columbia) produced by Shins keyboard player Richard Swift.
“No Way Down (Swift Sessions)” and “Fall of 82 (Swift Sessions)” will be released via all digital outlets the following week on November 27.
Between wrapping another U.S. leg of touring later this month and continuing on to Mexico and additional U.S. dates in December, The Shins will appear on the October 27 episode of Austin City Limits. Check local listings and set your DVRs as you won’t want to miss a memorable evening combining highlights from this year’s acclaimed Port of Morrow interspersed with classics spanning The Shins’ canon of Oh, Inverted World, Chutes Too Narrow, and Wincing The Night Away.
