Mae "Destination: B-Sides" Vinyl Available For Pre-Order Now
We're proud to announce that we will be re-releasing Mae's beloved album, Destination: B-Sides, at digital retailers and on limited edition vinyl on January 27th. To commemorate the album's ten year anniversary, it will be available on vinyl for the first time ever and features an updated track listing that includes two brand new takes on two classic Mae songs, "Skyline Drive 3.0" (from Destination: Beautiful) and "Where The Falls Begin 2.0" (from The Everglow Special Edition). Recorded during the summer and fall of 2014, these recordings mark the first newly recorded music by all 5 original members of Mae in over 4 years.
The album is available for pre-order now on limited edition vinyl at the Spartan store. The first pressing of the album includes an exclusive gatefold jacket and all pre-orders comes with an instant download of the newly recorded song "Skyline Drive 3.0."

"Skyline Drive 3.0" was arranged, performed, and recorded specifically for the Destination: B-Sides re-release,” says Mae keyboardist Rob Sweitzer. "Our fans have been asking us for a re-release of the album, especially on vinyl; and so we've honored those requests by giving them something "new" in addition to the re-release of the original tracks. The five of us in Mae have been away from the collective creative table for a bit, and recording this new version of "Skyline Drive" was a great way to provide our fans with something different and to seize the opportunity to experiment with our sound to see if there may be more than just a re-mix left in our blood."
