    Physically own Letters of Last Resort, with unique and personalised packaging. The achingly classic Compact Disc comes in a lovingly-crafted 6-panel digipak cardboard case, beautifully slipped into a brown fleck 120gsm thick recycled vegan gluten-free envelope, with your fine name and gorgeous address printed in jet cobalt black ink. Affixed with a stalwart bright red 1st Class stamp, the package is then hand-placed into a traditional British postbox.

    (Personalised artisanal envelope subject to availability and the whim of an unstable printer.)

    Includes unlimited streaming of Letters of Last Resort via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

Where were you when you said you would be by the phone?
I hung up as it rang out no one left to call
My phone died and your mobile number went with it
I've not had to know numbers since I was a kid

I knew your landline before you switched from BT
Year's '97, 0141 563...
I head up to the High Street, find a public phone
Press redial, still no answer, the whole town's not home

I drove round to your parents' house, stopped outside it
You don't live there now but it's where you used to live
I back away and turn just as the curtains twitch
I heard you're mainstream now, I'm headed towards the ditch

Remember when you said you could convince the world?
You had such a strong voice for such a little girl
Now you've left town, you took your act on the road
Now I don't even know your area code
