Overview

This ambitious project consisted of Songs About Time, three mini albums released every three months; Films About Weeks, 52 black and white short films scored and arranged by The Rentals and released every Tuesday; and Photographs About Days, 365 photographs released daily. The first of the mini albums, Chapter One, was released April 7, 2009; Chapter Two was released July 7, 2009 and Chapter Three on October 20, 2009. All three chapters were released digitally via therentals.com. The first chapter, entitled The Story of a Thousand Seasons Past was recorded during late 2008 and early 2009. It features guest playing from Joey Santiago (of The Pixies). Fans speculate that the songs are about Matt looking retrospectively at his time spent in Europe during the Seven More Minutes era.
