Light Years was initially released to Cherry Tree members as an exclusive presale and is accompanied by an exclusive vinyl album. The record features songs chosen by MacIndoe and Scott Devendorf from The National’s 2018 performances at Forest Hills Stadium in New York. The package is limited to 3,200 units, all of which are numbered.
