In an effort to cut to the core of the matter, long-running electronic pop trio Saint Etienne released Words and Music by Saint Etienne (TMT Review) on Heavenly Recordings earlier this year. Immediately, the prospective listener (you and/or not you) knew what to expect from this new Saint Etienne record. You could expect words, along with music. These elements would be provided by Saint Etienne. Why am I explaining this? You already know.
Let me do things the way Saint Etienne does things. North America can soon expect a tour by Saint Etienne. The Saint Etienne tour is in October and November. If you attend, you will hear words and music by Saint Etienne, presumably many of which will derive from Words and Music by Saint Etienne. It has been many years since Saint Etienne has done a tour of North America. Attendees to these shows will be able to purchase a 2-CD deluxe edition of Words and Music by Saint Etienne at the show. This set will include unreleased material. One can only assume it will be titled Words and Music by Saint Etienne and Another Disc of Unreleased Songs.
