The reissue is spread across three LPs; the standard album is on the first two records, while the bonus tracks are on the third. The bonus disc includes an alternate version of album opener "Terrible Love," plus four outtakes and three live recordings. All told, there are eight bonus cuts.
All this comes on three vinyl colour variants: standard (white and purple marbled vinyl), online fan club Cherry Tree (white and purple split-colour vinyl), and a Vinyl Me, Please exclusive (white and purple splatter vinyl).
Additionally, the National will release a concert film called The National - 'High Violet' Live from Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) on YouTube. It will be available today starting at 5 p.m. ET. It was directed by D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus, having been originally filmed on May 10, 2010 — the day before High Violet's release. You can watch the concert film in the player below.
High Violet: 10th Anniversary Expanded Edition is available to pre-order through the National's online store or their Cherry Tree fan club. All profits from online sales will go to members of the band's touring crew.
The National said in a statement:
Our crew are the lifeblood of our touring operation and have become family through the many years we've worked together. As uncertainty looms over the state of the live concert industry, we will direct all profits from merch sales through our webstore, new Cherry Tree fan club enrollments, and sales from the Cherry Tree members-only store to support our crew members throughout this crisis to the best of our ability.
