This expanded edition of The Secret Migration is presented as a plush, hardbook containing original album lyrics, lots of visuals and new sleeve-notes by acclaimed author and journalist Barney Hoskyns. Originally issued in January 2005, The Secret Migration was the sixth album by Mercury Rev and followed All Is Dream (2001). In the UK, where the band were signed to V2, the album spawned two singles, ‘In A Funny Way’ and ‘Across Yer Ocean’. Joining the original album are a second disc of B-sides and previously unissued outtakes, a third disc wholly devoted to hitherto unheard demos and a fourth disc of in-concert material culled from shows around the globe (again, previously unreleased). For good measure, Disc 5 revisits the band’s subsequent soundtrack album, Hello Blackbird.
