Happy Thanksgiving all! In between the turkey, tofurkey, potatoes and pie, take the time to count your blessings and let your loved ones know how much you appreciate them!
We’re celebrating the holiday’s ourselves, but we have just a bit of news that we wanted to share. Andy Barron, Switchfoot’s photographer, podcast guy, photographer and graphics guru, posted a special holiday treat on his website - a first look at Eastern Hymns for Western Shores!
happy thanksgiving everyone! just yesterday i got my hands on the final product of the new Switchfoot EP entitled Eastern Hymns For Western Shores. seeing that this was a merch store only release, we figured we should try something kind of outside the box for the packaging. the band was really into the idea of these songs being a departure for the band, so we came up with the idea of having the packaging being like you were just on vacation somewhere and you just went to the Eastern Hymns gift shop and picked up postcards from each song. i think it turned out pretty great, and i can’t wait for you guys to get it! right now it’s only available in the Switchfoot merch store as a part of their christmas package, which you can get here. enjoy!
The tracklisting is as follows:
- Dirty Second Hands (original version)
- Connect with the Spine
- We Are Bound
- Daylight to Break
I have to say, I’m a little disappointed to see that there are only two “new” songs – we’ve already heard Daylight, Stitches, We Are Bound and Dirty Second Hands (though a different version, true) – still, the artwork itself is beautiful and it’s going to be an awesome release.
Now go watch Happy Thanksgiving Charlie Brown and enjoy the rest of the holidays!
