Grandaddy has announced a 20th anniversary reissue of 1997’s Under the Western Freeway. The vinyl-only reissue comes with a separate LP featuring eight previously unreleased tracks, including “Hawaiian Island Wranglers,” which the band has shared and can be heard below. The first 250 preorders come with an exclusive bonus cassette, entitled Practice ‘97, that has eight unreleased recordings from a Grandaddy band practice in 1997. The deluxe package includes liner notes written by Super Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys. Check out “Hawaiian Island Wranglers” below, followed by the reissue’s tracklist.

Grandaddy released a new album, Last Place, back in March via 30th Century Records, a label run by Danger Mouse. It’s their first album in 11 years, since 2006’s Just Like the Fambly Cat.
