If Elliott Smith hadn't tragically died on October 21, 2003 at age 34, today he would have turned 50. In honor of his birthday, UMe have digitally surprise released deluxe reissues of 1998's XO and 2000's Figure 8, both originally released by DreamWorks Records. Each comes loaded with bonus tracks, such as B-sides, demos, remixes, and acoustic versions. And while none of the bonus tracks are previously unreleased, many haven't been officially released digitally before.
