Weezer’s Pinkerton deluxe edition to feature 16 unreleased tracks

on September 27, 2010, 4:59pm

Seems like Weezer are continuing that trend of making fans feel happy and nostalgic with their releases, as opposed to confused and angry. First there was Hurley, which re-confirmed our faith in the band, and then the upcoming Blinkerton tour just solidified that fact. Now they’re dropping a deluxe reissue of Pinkerton (which we announced back in July) but now with new, never-before-released material. That’s right, back on the gravy train, boys!

The two-disc Pinkerton – Deluxe Edition will feature the album’s original tracks, all remastered of course, along with 25 contemporaneous tracks, 16 of which have never seen the light of a record shop. Among those gems are “Tragic Girl”, B-side “I Swear It’s True”, and a number of live recordings. In regards to the latter, the songs come from performances at Reading, radio sessions in Philadelphia, PA and Salt Lake City, UT, including an obscure, lunchtime gig at Shorecrest High School near Seattle, WA, all of which were rarely played again after the album’s initial supporting tour.

Enjoy the tracklists below. Pinkerton – Deluxe Edition hits stores November 2nd via Interscope Records.
