Notes

A Newbury Comics Exclusive Limited Edition of 1000 on red and green vinyl. Released on 12/10/2013.

Most of the songs were recorded at The Buddy Project (Astoria, Queens). Many of the quiet parts were recorded at Sufjan's apartment in Brooklyn. The piano was recorded in the dead of night at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. The string quartet was recorded at Marla's apartment in Washington Heights. Matt Morgan's vocals were recorded in Red Hook, Brooklyn, minutes before the firemen arrived, wielding their axes, in order to address the problem of the gas leak. The electric organ was recorded at the New Jerusalem Recreational Room in Clarksboro, NJ. The vibraphone was recorded at Carroll Music Studios, New York City.

This pressing has balloon artwork on the front cover (a homage to the balloon sticker used to hide the Superman artwork of the original pressing). In addition, on the back cover, note that the police cars have Illinois license plates "AKR014" and "A NO NO".
