The Be Good Tanyas Celebrate Over a Decade in Music with Expanded Vinyl Edition of 'Blue Horse'
On July 5, the folk outfit will unveil a double-LP version of Blue Horse, containing two 180-gram records in gatefold packaging. It will also include a 28-page songbook and a digital download card.
In addition to the original 12-song album, the new edition will contain three bonus tracks on the fourth side. Two of these -- "Mule on the Mountain" and "Ain't No Change" -- are outtakes from the original Blue Horse sessions and feature founding member turned solo artist Jolie Holland. The other one isn't actually a Be Good Tanyas track. Rather, it's the song "Be Good Tanya" by San Francisco songwriter Obo Martin, which provided the inspiration for the group's name.
See the tracklist below. Scroll past that to check out the band's summer tour plans, which include Canadian shows in Vancouver and Winnipeg.

1. "The Littlest Birds"
2. "Broken Telephone"
