The Weather Station has released the deluxe edition of her most recent album Ignorance.

Ignorance (Deluxe) is out now on digital streaming platforms, with a 2xLP set arriving on November 19 via Fat Possum. Check out ‘Better Now’ and ‘Look’ along with the full deluxe album below.
“I wrote ‘Better Now’ in Banff, Alberta, in stolen moments as I was teaching songwriting and writing for myself,” Tamara Lindeman said in a statement. “It’s all just true; the mountains, the piano, the first line, the pain of being hurt and the joy of being alright anyways.”
Of the deluxe edition of Ignorance, she added:
Whenever you make anything, you have to leave things out; it’s a critical part of the process, but a painful one nonetheless. I’m glad to have the opportunity to revisit the paths not taken, and allow some of them out after all; quiet versions of songs that were redirected into rhythm, two of the songs we recorded but left off the album, and some live versions of the songs that have come to be since the recording. It has been overwhelming to have this album be so lovingly received, and it is wonderful to have the space to release more of it into the world.
