Now that’s the kind of excess we can get behind…

It’s called Somewhere Beautiful and as you can glom onto the photo above, we’re sure you will agree it is something beautiful indeed: that would be the new triple album from New Zealand legends The Chills, and it’s due Oct. 15 from Fire Records. Boasting sleeve art (plus limited edition art prints) by New Zealand artist Shane Cotton, the record was recorded live at a private party on New Year’s Eve 2011 and features a slew of material culled from the group’s estimable career.
Check out track “Night Of Chill Blue” below, and note, also, that Fire has decided to reward folks who preorder the album by sending it to them a month ahead of the official street date. Sometimes being a superfan can pay off, eh?
