Just to clarify, is the only way to get the five acoustic songs to order the digital download, or do these tracks come with the download card when you purchase a vinyl copy?
Edit: According to their merch site this item is set to ship 12/03/2013. Does that seem a little late, or is it just me? This album does re-release on 10/15/2013, correct?
That's when the vinyl will be shipping. You'll get a download in your email most likely; There's an asterick at the bottom that says "all vinyl purchases include a free digital download of the tracks per product." So you can interpret that any way you want I guess. Those acoustic songs have been on itunes since the album originally released in February.
EDIT: Looking at iTunes now it appears they have taken down the original deluxe version of TIHTWS.
