Elliott Smith

Elliott Smith‘s label, Kill Rock Stars, will release New Moon, a two-disc collection of songs recorded in 1995-1997, the period concurrent with the making of Smith’s classic KRS albums Elliott Smith and Either/Or. The album is due May 8th, with a portion of the proceeds from sales going to Outside In, a Portland, Oregon social service agency helping homeless youth. New Moon was mixed by Smith’s longtime friend and collaborator, producer/engineer Larry Crane, who also serves as the archivist for Smith’s estate.

Needless to say, this news made my day.

In a press release, Kill Rock Stars noted that the Los Angeles Police Department’s investigation into Smith’s death on October 21, 2003 remains open.
