Dear Nora, the musical project of Katy Davidson (they/them), has announced a limited edition triple LP box set reissue of their long out of print career-spanning compilation Three States: Rarities 1997-2007. Originally released by Magic Marker as a double CD in 2008, Orindal Records is releasing the collection on vinyl for the first time. The box set features 60 tracks, including three bonus tracks, one of which you can listen to today titled “Time Is Now (Autumn Version),” and an 8-page, full color booklet filled with liner notes and archival photos.
Of “Time Is Now (Autumn Version),” Davidson says “‘Time Is Now’ is a song that tells a timeless story from a zoomed-out perspective. The narrator has come to a deeper understanding by taking life lessons into account from a distance. But it’s also zoomed-in. It’s a meditation on the exact present moment, which is constantly arriving and leaving, elusive, but something that we pursue as if it’s the holy grail.I wrote and recorded the song in 2017, intending to include it on Skulls Example, but it just didn’t fit. I recorded a second version in 2019, which is the one that appears on this collection. I recorded this version purposely in the style of Simon and Garfunkel, and I was hoping it would provide the soundtrack to an advertisement. That didn’t come to fruition, so I’m including it on this release.”
Three States: Rarities 1997-2007 is available for pre-order now and due September 18th via Orindal Records..
