This is like, I should do a different interview for 'What The Fuck Am I Doing Magazine' or something like that. So Twin is the bonus disc, so there will be a two disc set that's kind of the deluxe edition, we're calling it the Twin Edition, and so the bonus disc has all of the songs from the record in different versions, so some of them are acoustic, some of them are kind of remix, some of them, one of them is just kind of like a soundscape with, you...
