Jagjaguwar has announced This Is a Mindfulness Drill, the second of four albums the label is releasing in its Jag Quarterly series this year, celebrating its 25th anniversary. It is a “completely reimagined reissue” of Richard Youngs’ 1998 album Sapphie, which was physically reissued in 2000. The album was recorded by the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble and includes vocal performances by Moses Sumney, Perfume Genius and Sharon Van Etten. Listen to Sumney’s opener “Soon It Will Be Fire” below. Scroll down for the album art of This Is a Mindfulness Drill by Lonnie Holley.

A meditation version of This Is a Mindfulness Drill will also be released on cassette. The additional work was created by ambient artist Emily A. Sprague, who made a 42-minute loop piece from cycles and drones. Both versions will be released on June 25th. The first of the Jag Quarterly albums, Dilate Your Heart, entangled the poetry of Ross Gay with musicians from the Jagjaguwar roster, including Bon Iver.
