Universal Music and Castle Face Records are really excited about the 45th anniversary of The Velvet Underground & Nico. So excited, in fact, that in addition to reissuing the album on Oct. 30 in a box set—which includes 30 unreleased tracks and an 88-page essay by biographer Richie Unterberger—they're also releasing a new deluxe edition with a stereo version of the album, plus some of the band's rehearsal sessions.
On top of that, Castle Face Records (not so coincidentally owned by Thee Oh Sees' John Dwyer) is releasing a tribute album featuring Velvet Underground And Nico covers by bands like Ty Segall, The Fresh And Onlys, White Fence, and, yes, Thee Oh Sees. A different song will be made available for download every day between Oct. 15 and Oct. 29, while the whole thing will be compiled into a vinyl exclusive to be released on Nov. 6. A full tracklist is below.
