Deluxe colored vinyl LP pressing including bonus seven inch single pressing. Includes bonus material not found on the original. Also includes digital download which features some incredible drunk commentary by Jamie Stewart. A Promise is the second studio album by experimental band Xiu Xiu, released in February 2003. The album includes a stripped-down cover of Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car", of which Stewart said "That song really, very, very, very directly shaped how I wanted to write lyrics or what I wanted songs to be about... I wanted them to turn out in so far as the song very specifically narrates some particular horrible things that happen to somebody and there's no positive resolution in the end at all." Referring to the closing track, "Ian Curtis Wishlist", Stewart explained that "an Ian Curtis wish list is a list of things that you have convinced yourself that you want to have happen, but you know that are never going to happen."
