DIIV are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their 2012 debut Oshin with an expanded reissue, which is out August 19 via Captured Tracks. The 2xLP set features demos, two live versions (including the previously unreleased track ‘Yuk’), a 24-page retrospective booklet with photos, reflections from the band, and liner notes written by Shaad D’Souza.
“Oshin is our first album. It came out ten years ago and because of that we have decided to put together a very nice and very intricate and thoughtful 10th anniversary edition of the album for you,” frontman Zachary Cole Smith said in a statement. “We are packaging it alongside my homemade demo recordings and a few unreleased live recordings from one of our first shows. It has new art by our friend Parker Sprout and it has some writing from the members of the band, the writer of the original Oshin poem, and an expansive meditation on the history of the album from Shaad D’souza. We hope you enjoy it.”
In addition to the Oshin reissue, DIIV are releasing a limited edition box set featuring their first three singles: ‘Sometime’, ‘Human’, and ‘Geist’.
