Hiss Golden Messenger announce box set, share rare song

The box set is a four-LP collection.

Hiss Golden Messenger have announced Devotion: Songs about Rivers and Spirits and Children, a limited-edition vinyl box set that includes three remastered albums and a rarities compilation, Virgo Fool. The latter features a previously unreleased track, “Rock Holy,” that you can hear now.

It’s a smokey, Memphis soul-inspired country jam that lays frontman MC Taylor’s signature husky vocals over horns, funky grooves and a rumbling tempo. So if you enjoyed the songs on the North Carolina outfit’s most recent album, Hallelujah Anyway, you’ll like “Rock Holy.”

Inside the box set are reissues of three Hiss Golden Messenger classics: 2010’s Bad Debt, 2011’s Poor Moon and 2013’s Haw. The four-LP package is complete with an exclusive foldout poster, liner notes and the full lyrics to each song on the albums.  


Devotion: Songs about Rivers and Spirits and Children is out November 2 via Merge Records. Pre-order yours here.
