Spartan Records has announced plans to release Mae’s beloved compilation Destination: B-Sides on vinyl for the first time ever on January 27th. The record will be available digitally and on limited edition vinyl from Spartan and is currently up for pre-order now at http://spr.tn/maebsides.
In celebration of the upcoming release Mae has partnered with USAToday.com to unveil a reimagining and new recording of their fan favorite track “Skyline Drive” now dubbed “Skyline Drive 3.0.” Stream the track now at http://usat.ly/1xSrZTO.
"Skyline Drive 3.0" was arranged, performed, and recorded specifically for the Destination: B-Sides re-release,” says Mae keyboardist Rob Sweitzer. “Our fans have been asking us for a re-release of the album, especially on vinyl; and so we decided to honor those requests by giving them something "new" in addition to the re-release of the original tracks. The five of us in Mae have been away from the collective creative table for a bit, and recording this new version of “Skyline Drive” was a great way to provide our fans with something "new" with the re-release, to determine if we still have musical chemistry, and to seize the opportunity to experiment with our sound to see if there may be more than just a re-mix left in our blood.”
Mae will celebrate the tenth anniversary of their 2005 album The Everglow in 2015 with a string of shows in January where they’ll be performing the album in its entirety. Tickets are are sale now and exclusive VIP Ticket packages are available at the official VIP ticket website, theeverglowtour.com.
