Best case scenario, entirely new tracks. 2nd best: a mix of great Drift songs and new material. 3rd: best of Drift, remastered...some difference from the already released tracks. 4th: compilation of Drift tracks s formerly released.

We already know the answer, right? "DRIFT SONGS expands and enhances a selection of the recordings the duo have released since they began their audio/visual experiment in November 2018." from the album announce page: https://underworldlive.com/drift-songs/

It'll be songs from the EPs, updated a little - probably mostly just edits, cross-fades, a couple of new layers, maybe a couple of radically altered ones like they did with Soniamode - with a couple of new songs on there too.

Yes, I guess. I'm just hoping that, as a new album, R and K will present the best.

Very interesting. I assume the bonus disc won't contain anything that's not on the boxset, but I guess we'll see.

Re: DRIFT SONGS - New album, Oct 25, 2019
I was doing my best to fix up the Underworld Discogs listings for the Drift series. They had Drift Episode 2 ATOM listed as an album and the other EPs were listed under Miscellaneous for some reason. I edited them all EPs as that is what the band states they are and what Discogs goes by now. It seems the idea of total length and/or amount of tracks have gone out the window.


Discogs lists both Nine Inch Nails' Bad Witch and The Smashing Pumpkins' Shiny And Oh So Bright - Vol. 1 / LP - No Past, No Future, No Sun as albums, even though technically they really are EPs. The reason is because the artists said these were albums and then digital sites listed them as so. Underworld's Drift releases come up under the EP section on Spotify and 7Digital and so on. Underworld said the different Episodes are EPs, that's how they should be listed. Some of the folks on Discogs can be a little d!ck!sh about this stuff. If the folks on Discogs who edit releases try to say the opposite and change them, well then they should change the listings for Nine Inch Nails and Smashing Pumpkins while they are at it. Let's see what happens.

Miscellaneous is when the various algorithms on the site can't work out whether it's an album or EP or compilation (if none are tagged). Atom is so long that it got listed automatically as album.

That said there doesn't seem to be anywhere that the band have stated they are EPs, so by Discogs rules then they shouldn't be tagged as that. The Sonar link, I think, was written by the promoters. The only thing the band have called them is 'episodes'. So, technically, they shouldn't be listed as EPs.

If you went by album versus EP rules that someone shared depending on different digital stores, all 4 EPs would be considered albums by their length. The album was clearly distinguished from these EPs in the article and Drift Songs announcement. So we know they are not albums. Spotify and 7Digital list them under EPs as well as Wiki. If they are not albums, then they are EPs.

Nine Inch Nails' Bad Witch was originally the last in a trilogy of EPs that were announced. It is 6 tracks and 30:11 in length. Trent decided to call it an album when he discovered the way EPs are shoved at the bottom on digital sites and albums have more prominent billings. Plus blogs and reviewers find albums more attractive. Bad Witch was cleary an EP until Trent decided to list it as an album.

The fact that the Drift Episodes are in the EP section on Spotify clearly shows artists/labels have a say in which section a release is placed in and not on these so-called rules Spotify have or else they would have automatically been placed in album section by their rules... yet they are in the EP section where they belong.
