Blitzen Trapper are marking the 10th anniversary of their debut album by reissuing a deluxe version for Record Store Day. The new reissue includes five bonus tracks culled from the recording sessions for Blitzen Trapper, and one them, "On a Tuesday," is streaming exclusively at RollingStone.com. The song meanders through silky organ licks and languid percussion, with frontman Eric Earley letting his words flow effortlessly over the dawdling track.
"This was a one-off we tracked in the garage. I think the Shuggie [Otis] remaster had just come out and I wanted that sweet Rhodes soul coming through," Earley tells Rolling Stone. "Not sure I recall what the song's even about – something sad, that's for sure."
The deluxe reissue of Blitzen Trapper will be released on April 20th. The album will be available as a special vinyl edition of 1,000 copies, and 200 of the records will be pressed on clear vinyl. Blitzen Trapper will also head out for a short tour starting May 20th at the Badlander in Missoula, Montana, and wrapping up May 31st at the Doug Fir Lounge in their hometown of Portland, Oregon.
