    Even four years after his death, the sensitive songwriter Elliott Smith still lives on with a number of posthumous releases. First there was From a Basement on The Hill, the haunting collection of songs Smith was working on at the time of his untimely demise. And now on May 8th, Smith's original label Kill Rock Stars (he later signed with Dreamworks) will release New Moon, a two-disc compilation of 24 songs recorded during his minimal acoustic period (1994-1997) while he working on his two emotionally potent classics, the self-titled Elliott Smith and Either/Or. A significant portion of proceeds from New Moon will go towards Outside In, a social service organization designed to provide benefits and services to homeless teens and underprivileged adults.

    The track listing is as follows:

    Disc One:

    01 Angel in the Snow
