The Weather Station has shared a deluxe edition of her Polaris Music Prize-nominated album Ignorance today (29 September), which includes two new songs titled "Better Now" and "Look".

After making this year's Polaris Music Prize shortlist with Ignorance, The Weather Station has followed the nominnation up with a deluxe version of the album, which is out on digital platforms now.

On top of featuring the original tracklist, live, and piano versions of select songs, the deluxe version includes two new tracks titled "Better Now" and "Look".

The Weather Station's Tamara Lindeman says of the first new song, "I wrote "Better Now" in Banff, Alberta, in stolen moments as I was teaching songwriting and writing for myself. It's all just true; the mountains, the piano, the first line, the pain of being hurt and the joy of being alright anyways."

She adds of the deluxe album, "Whenever you make anything, you have to leave things out; it's a critical part of the process, but a painful one nonetheless. I'm glad to have the opportunity to revisit the paths not taken, and allow some of them out after all; quiet versions of songs that were redirected into rhythm, two of the songs we recorded but left off the album, and some live versions of the songs that have come to be since the recording. It has been overwhelming to have this album be so lovingly received, and it is wonderful to have the space to release more of it into the world."

The Weather Station's deluxe edition of Ignorance is out on digital platforms now. Physical copies will follow on 19 November via Fat Possum, and are available to pre-order now.
