Featuring remixes by Morgan Geist, Andre Lodemann and Michel Cleis, the Why Does the Wind? EP contains several exciting new takes on one of the standout tracks from Tracey Thorn's new record Love and Its Opposite.

Here are some of Tracey's thoughts on the song and on the idea of remixes:

"It's a song about one person in a relationship being more committed than the other, and feeling pissed off that the other one is looking for a way out, leaving the back door open."

"I just love hearing remixes of my songs, I like hearing where other people will take the original idea. Also, I don't ever want to completely close the door on the electronic side of my music, and I'm aware that there are many fans who love hearing my voice over a more dancefloor-friendly track, so the remixes are a way of offering at least a little something to those listeners too."

What is the difference between MP3 and FLAC files?

Merge offers the highest quality MP3s possible. They are encoded without DRM using the LAME version 3.97 encoder at non-variable rate of 320 kbps. At this quality level, the sound is essentially indistinguishable from a CD.

We also offer FLAC digital music files. FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, an uncompressed audio format. As such, FLAC files provide a perfect digital copy of a given piece of music.

MP3s eliminate audio data in order to reduce file size. FLAC files are by definition 'lossless' and are a perfect digital copy of the original source material. Because of this, a FLAC audio file is much larger in size than an MP3 file. While FLAC audio is ideal if you listen to your music on a higher-end home stereo, or enjoy close-listening on headphones, it does not have as widespread playback support as the MP3 format.

*Note: FLAC files do not work in iTunes.
