Fans of Songs: Ohia will not only have a chance to revisit the project's 2000 LP The Lioness with a new reissue next month, but they'll also be treated to a disc of never-before-heard recordings as part of the package.

The expanded Love & Work: The Lioness Sessions arrives November 23 through Secretly Canadian. The disc of unreleased material was recorded during sessions for the album, and while "similar in tone and structure," the material is said to "deal in the grit and dirt of being."

The 2-LP set also features a 16-page book of new photos and meditations from collaborators and members of late frontman Jason Molina's family. The set also includes replicas of ephemera from Molina's life, including letters to his wife-to-be, the postcard that became the album's artwork and more.

Love & Work: The Lioness Sessions is available for pre-order here. Watch an announcement video for the reissue below.

Jason Molina passed away in 2013 from organ failure due to alcohol consumption. His work was recently covered by Kevin Morby and Waxahatchee for charity.
