"Final Straw (20th Anniversary Edition)"
Yes, another post about Snow Patrol
Last week, I shared a video of one of my favorite live performances of one of my favorite songs: “Run” by Snow Patrol.
As it turns out, Snow Patrol also recently released a special 20th anniversary edition of “Final Straw,” the album with “Run” and a number of other excellent songs. The album was announced back in March and subsequently released for digital download, vinyl, and CD. It only made its way to Apple Music on Friday.
“Final Straw (20th Anniversary Edition)” packs 35 songs, including the original tracks, a number of demos and live performances, plus a handful of previously unreleased songs. The “Run” demo in particular is fascinating to hear – and shows just how much changed between the initial recording and what was ultimately released.
