Following an anniversary edition Everything I Long For, Canadian songwriting hero Hayden is giving his Moving Careful release the same treatment.
On March 9, Hayden will release the 1996 EP as an expanded 20th anniversary edition, both on vinyl and digitally. It will mark the first vinyl pressing the release since it initially arrived as a 10-inch.
Moving Careful was originally recorded in the mid-’90s and released Hardwood/Sonic Unyon in late 1996. For the expanded reissue, Side 2 the release will include a series rare recording captured between ’94 and ’96.
In a statement, Hayden had this to say about the release:
After touring my debut, Everything I Long For, across Canada for the better part two years from 1994-96, I celebrated its imminent International release by developing a strong dislike for the sound my music. A major sticking point in my negotiations with Outpost Recordings (my US label at the time) was to have the ability to release singles and EPs on my own or through smaller labels. They agreed, and Moving Careful was born from late night obsessions on the third floor a rented Victorian house in Toronto. Although much my debut was recorded on a 4-track cassette, I was eager to get back to my Yamaha MT100 II, and very inspired by what Eric’s Trip and Lou Barlow were doing at the time.
