Kurt Vile in Austin in August (more by Glen Brown)

Kurt Vile's had a great year, having released the excellent Wakin On A Pretty Daze, which we're sure to see on a couple year-end lists in the next few months. But before the year ends, that album will get the deluxe treatment. Like he did for 2011's Smoke Ring For My Halo, KV will be releasing a new EP -- titled it's a big world out there (and i am scared) -- and in addition to releasing it on its own, he'll package it as the bonus disc with the deluxe edition of the album. That edition is called Deluxe Daze (Post Haze), and both that album and the EP on its own will be out on November 19 via Matador.

The new EP features two new songs, "Feel My Pain" and "The Ghost of Freddie Roach," in addition to new versions of some of the Pretty Daze tracks. Check out the full tracklist and the album artwork for the EP and the deluxe album (both designed by Steve Powers [ESPO]) below. Also below is a stream of a mixtape Kurt made of songs that influenced the record called "KV Mixtape." A letter he wrote about the tape begins:

here is a "mix-tape" that i had been sort-of-conceiving for some time before i actually made it. i would say i made it mainly to pump myself up. and then my bandmates, extended bandmates, producer, etc... but also to get all my friends that were involved (at least subliminally) on my wave-length when i needed it most...

Read the rest of the letter at his website.

Deluxe Daze isn't the only thing Kurt is getting on shelves before the year comes to a close. He also recently announced that he'd be releasing a collaborative EP with Sore Eros (aka Robert Robinson, who was once in Kurt's band, The Violators). That EP is called Jamaica Plain and it's due out on November 4 via Care in the Community Recordings. You can check out the artwork and tracklist below.

Kurt's been touring for months, and he'll return to NYC to headline a previously discussed show on October 25 at Terminal 5 with post-Sonic Youth band Lee Ranaldo & the Dust (who also have a new album on the way) and Beach Fossils. Tickets for the T5 show are still available, and we're also giving away a pair. Details on how to enter to win are below.
