It’s been a remarkable year for The Weather Station. Ignorance is one of 2021’s most beloved albums, earning Tamara Lindeman a Polaris Music Prize nomination, a gorgeous Tiny Desk (At Home) Concert, and her US television debut on CBS This Morning: Saturday. On Nov. 19, The Weather Station released a two-disc deluxe edition of Ignorance.
Ignorance (Deluxe) features the original tracklist, live and piano versions of select songs, plus two never before released tracks, including “Look” and “Better Now.” Lindeman comments, “I wrote ‘Better Now’ in Banff, Alberta, in stolen moments as I was teaching songwriting and writing for myself. It’s all just true; the mountains, the piano, the first line, the pain of being hurt and the joy of being alright anyways.”

Lindeman further explains the idea behind Ignorance (Deluxe): “Whenever you make anything, you have to leave things out; it’s a critical part of the process, but a painful one nonetheless. I’m glad to have the opportunity to revisit the paths not taken, and allow some of them out after all; quiet versions of songs that were redirected into rhythm, two of the songs we recorded but left off the album, and some live versions of the songs that have come to be since the recording. It has been overwhelming to have this album be so lovingly received, and it is wonderful to have the space to release more of it into the world.”
