Pitchfork picks up on the Elliott Smith book by Autumn De Wilde

The book is tentatively scheduled for a November release by Chronicle Books, and gathers over 200 pages of De Wilde's many photos of Elliott, as well as handwritten lyrics and interviews with Smith's sister Ashley Welch and friends Ben Gibbard, Sam Coomes (of Quasi and Smith's old band Heatmiser), Matthew Caws (Nada Surf), and Jon Brion. Proceeds from the book will be donated to the SIMS Foundation, which provides affordable mental health care to musicians, and Portland-based homeless youth advocacy group Outside In.

The book will also include a five-song CD featuring previously unreleased live acoustic tracks recorded by Smith at L.A.'s Largo club. The CD features a trio of Smith fan favorites-- Either/Or's "Angeles" and "Between the Bars", and "Clementine" from his self-titled LP-- as well as covers of Quasi's "Clouds" and Hank Williams Jr.'s "All My Rowdy Friends Have Settled Down".
