One man. Six tracks. This mid-April, there's only one label with the power to reissue this out-of-print album with a bonus disc. Experience...

Jim O'Rourke in I'm Happy and I'm Singing and a 1, 2, 3, 4.

Setting: the past. The years 1997-1999. Jim O'Rourke, solo artist and member of groups like Sonic Youth, Loose Fur, and Gastr del Sol, has just completed recording I'm Happy and I'm Singing on his laptop. The music was hot, and the babes were even hotter, and the cities where the album was recorded -- New York, Osaka, Tokyo, Toronto, and Malmö -- didn't even know what hit 'em. Fastforward to 2009. The album has been out of print for five years. The fans are restless. The music community has only one hope: that of a Editions Mego records reissue.

Starring Vin Diesel and Tara Reid, no other album reissue will have you THIS on the edge of your seat. Coming this mid-April, don't miss the reissue that Roger Ebert declared "a non-stop summer blockbuster of minimalism" and Leonard Maltin called "the best new artwork I've ever seen on a reissue."

I'm Happy and I'm Singing and a 1, 2, 3, 4 reissue tracklisting:

1. I'm Happy
2. And I'm Singing
