Songs
, due Sept. 8 and one of BLURT’s Most Anticipated Fall Releases, can
net fans some bonus goodies if they act early.

 

By tapping the label’s Buy Early Get Now program, consumers
can nab a stream of the album a month early, plus LP and poster freebies. To
wit:

 

Now in it’s [sic] 8th incarnation, this version of BEGN features
the following for advance purchasers of ‘Popular Songs’ on double LP or compact
disc:

 

one of the above
configurations, available for collection at a trusted physical retailer on
September 8.
– the full album stream starting August 4, with exclusive bonus MP3s to follow.
– a vinyl LP featuring Yo La Tengo’s Orginal Score from the Motion Picture “Adventureland”
– a poster (design TBD, but trust us, you’ll be pleased).

 

So there you have it. Sounds like a swell deal to us! Meawhile, a fall tour
