Elliott Smith will release a new single via seven-inches of wax on August 19. The two-song release will contain ìPretty (Ugly Before)î and ìA Distorted Reality Is Now a Necessity to Be Free,î which will be released on the Suicide Squeeze label. Pitchfork reports that the single, and first drop of new material since 2000ís (rather mundane) Figure 8, will be limited to 5,000 copies. Apparently, the singer/songwriterís forthcoming album, From A Basement On The Hill, will be released in 2004, but we all know that shit was finished back in 2002...whatís the hold up, yo?
