Be sure to donate to Paste Magazine!

...AND be sure to download Switchfoot's song "We Are Bound" as a gift in return for the kind donation. I was listening to it today, and compared it to the version of the track that was given for the Switchfoot holiday package, and there were a few differences between the two.

For one thing: although it's not too, too noticeable, the vocals on the Paste version are mixed slightly louder than in what we'll call the "Holiday Pack" version.

Secondly: Switchfoot recorded an extra set of lyrics/vocals during the coda of the Paste version. It's a bit hard to make out, but I think what they're saying is "in the counterfeit suns, in the counterfeit suns." This whole thing is absent in the "Holiday Pack" version, except at the very end if you listen closely.

Thirdly: The "Paste Magazine" version is actually apparently going to be on the "Eastern Hymns for Western Shores" EP that is going to eventually be released. The tagging indicated this so. So perhaps we should call it the EP version, or the "Eastern Shores" version. What do you think?
