A full length advance release of The Cat Empire's experimental album, Cities, was produced and released by Virgin Australia in 2006. Judging by the lack of any informational tag, this would have been sent out to reviewers and critics before the release of the album. The tracks differ in no way to the album - it is also the first Virgin Cat Empire promotional release to not feature a catalogue number (obviously a rushed job judging by the looks of the thing).
This release is fairly easy to obtain, with three copies being on eBay since the start of 2009 (going for low prices).
The track listing is as follows:
1. Cities - 3:23 - F Riebl, H Angus
2. Boogaloo - 3:30 - F Riebl, R Irwin
3. Siente - 2:43 - F Riebl, O McGill
4. Motion - 3:43 - F Riebl
5. Song for the Day - 3:47 - F Riebl, O McGill
6. Know Your Name - 3:21 - F Riebl
7. Song for Elias - 4:32 - F Riebl
8. Jungle (Instrumental) - 2:12 - H Angus
9. Down at the 303 - 2:40 - H Angus
10. Side to Side - 3:53 - F Riebl
11. Waltz - 4:24 - F Riebl
12. Luck Song - 3:30 - F Riebl, O McGill
13. Anymore - 3:52 - F Riebl
There is nothing printed on the other side of the cardboard slipcase.
