The Walkmen have just released a new deluxe edition of their major album You & Me in both digital and double LP format. Originally released in 2008, this new Sun Studio Edition is fully remastered by Chris Colbert at National Freedom and features a fourth side of unreleased tracks from the era recorded at Memphis’ legendary Sun Studio for PBS.
You & Me was the Walkmen’s fourth studio album, kicking off a new era for the band with standouts such as “In the New Year”, “On the Water”, and “I Lost You”. The Sun recordings showcase a massive local horn section including Ben Cauley of the Bar-Kays, the only survivor of the plane crash that took Otis Redding along with 4 other members of the Bar-Kays.
The band have also released videos of the sessions for two songs “Canadian Girl (Sun Studio Version)” and “Louisiana (Sun Studio Version)” that show them performing and recording the songs at Sun.
