Marketing push for U.S. release of Iha’s ‘Look to the Sky’ begins 12:58 pm // Monday, July 16, 2012

After premiering in Japan back in May, James Iha’s video for “To Who Knows Where” is now available for your streaming pleasure here in the United States (and possibly worldwide? Let us know if you have problems.)

Iha has also posted information to his Facebook account about the preorder for the U.S. release of Look to the Sky. The label for the release is listed as Brooklyn-based indie The End Records. You can preorder the album in CD or LP format along with other Look to the Sky branded merchandise; the first 100 orders will also receive a polaroid photo and button hand-made by Iha himself.

UPDATE: The U.S. Look the Sky CD and LP feature an additional track, “New Years Day,” that was not available on the Japanese release. As expected, the Japanese bonus tracks “Diamond Eyes” and “Stay Lost” are not included on either the U.S. CD or LP. However, “4th of July” and “Dark Star,” two album cuts from the Japanese release, are listed as bonus tracks for the U.S. CD and will not appear on the LP.

Really cool ideas here. Love that there are hand made buttons and unique polaroids for the first 100. Also I really love the design of the album covers, I wonder if James did the water colour himself.

Video wise, I like it a lot. I like how all the funny shots and the story is def WTF. James looks so serious, but has a wicked sense of humour.

Could the bonus track be a U2 cover?

I was lucky enough to pick up the Japanese version in April for 10 bucks on Amazon.

@HU

can you again please apologize to perpetua from p4k in my name??????!!!! can’t believe you are licking ass to a guy that represents p4k that has shitted on Billy/SP for a decade and has shown double standards in so many cases and has done literally everything to belittle the band while promoting poseurs, amateurs and radiohead impersonators

Hey lala, iha hasn’t said one bad thing about the pumpkins since he left the band, what interview or quote are you talking about? Radiohead impersonators? You don’t know what you’re talking about.
