Deluxe Edition 2CD. Like the other seven titles in the Saint Etienne Deluxe Edition series both discs are packaged in a gatefold card sleeve with a 24 page colour booklet.

The original sleeve notes by Travis Elborough are included alongside new notes by Adey Lobb of The Big Issue. The booklet also contains previously unseen photographs by Karen Robinson and Paul Kelly plus a blow by blow account of each song penned by the three members of Saint Etienne.

Disc one is the original 13 track album whilst Disc Two contains all 10 tracks from the long deleted US only ‘More Words And Music’ release plus 3 songs appearing on CD for the first time. ‘Pocket Call’ and two previously unreleased recordings ‘Starlings’ and ‘When I Was Seventeen (single mix)’. We think you’ll be pleased.

'Words and Music by Saint Etienne' was the bands eighth studio album released on 18 May 2012 by Heavenly Recordings. The record features collaborations from longtime Saint Etienne associate Ian Catt, as well as Richard X and former Xenomania members Tim Powell and Nick Coler. The title was provided by Lawrence of the bands Felt, Denim and Go-Kart Mozart.

According to Bob Stanley the record deals with "how music affects your life. How it defines the way you see the world as a child, how it can get you through bad times in unexpected ways, and how songs you've known all your life can suddenly develop a new attachment, and hurt every time you hear them. More than how it affects and reflects your life though, the album is about believing in music, living your life by its rules.”
