Today, Grammy Award-winning musician Jason Isbell unveiled plans for a 10-anniversary reissue of his critically acclaimed album, Southeastern. The now iconic musical offering is set to resurface on Sept. 29, marking just over a decade since its initial release on June 11, 2013.
The reimagined and reamplified Southeastern, slated for release through Southeastern Records/Thirty Tigers, promises an enchanting blend of nostalgia and innovation. The remastered version of the album–which introduced Isbell’s artistry to a global audience–will be adorned with a selection of demos and live renditions.
The album is a transcendent work that boasts 12 captivating tracks. Infused with confessions, reflections, and promises, the LP serves as a poignant testament that bridges generations. Isbell’s lyrical prowess offers a unique communion between the present and the past that easily endured the past decade and, since its initial release, garnered accolades from both devoted fans and critics.
The 10-anniversary reissue will arrive as a commemorative package: a Deluxe 4LP Box Set will be available, showcasing never-before-heard original Southeastern demos offering an intimate glimpse into the creative process that led to its inception. The aforementioned live recordings took place during a performance at Knoxville, Tenn.’s Bijou Theatre in December 2022.
