Grizzly Bear have announced plans for two new editions of last year’s Top Star-earning LP Shields. On November 12th, the two-disc CD Shields Expanded and the 12″ vinyl Shields B-Sides will give fans a deeper look at the band’s most “conversational and argumentative” effort to date.

Shields Expanded contains the original album plus a second disc of eight B-sides, remixes, and demos. Included amongst the B-sides is Nicolas Jaar’s “Sleeping Ute” remix, released this past April as a Record Store Day 12″. Meanwhile, the three demos were recorded in Marfa, TX before the band trekked to Cape Cod and New York City for the official album tracking sessions.

Shields B-Sides is a 12″ vinyl containing the Expanded demos and B-sides, plus a download card for mp3s of the remixes. A digital download of the eight tracks making up B-Sides will also be available.

Check out one of the Expanded demos that didn’t make Shields, “Will Calls”, followed by the complete tracklists for each edition.
