September 24th, 2013 at 10:16 am by Stuart

“it’s a big world out there (and i am scared)” is the new digital and 12″ vinyl EP from Kurt Vile and The Violators, out on November 19th with six of the seven new tracks previously unreleased.  The EP was recorded during the same sessions as the latest album and doubles as the bonus content for the newly announced 2xCD and digital album version of Wakin On A Pretty Daze: Deluxe Daze (Post Haze), also out November 19th.

Today Kurt shares a playlist at KurtVile.com of the mix CD he handed to the Violators and producer John Agnello before heading in to the studio for the recording of Wakin On A Pretty Daze, along with a message from Kurt (here) on the process of compiling the mix and its influence on recording.
