Grammy-winning group Alison Krauss & Union Station has partnered with Target for the exclusive, deluxe edition of Paper Airplane, CountryWeekly.com has learned.

Paper Airplane is Alison’s 14th album and the first for the band since 2004’s Lonely Runs Both Ways. The group will support the album this summer on a nationwide tour that will eventually take them to more than 50 cities.

While the general release of Paper Airplane will include 11 tracks, the Target deluxe edition features six additional songs, including three exclusive studio songs—“These Days” and “A Place Outside,” both written by Angel Snow and Krauss’ brother, Viktor Krauss; and “Frozen Fields,” composed by Jeff Black and Jon Randall.

Three bonus tracks also available on the album include Alison and her band performing live versions of “We Hide & Seek,” “Faraway Land” and “Every Time You Say Goodbye,” the last of which you can sample below.

The deluxe edition of Paper Airplane is now available for pre-order at target.com and will be offered at Target stores nationwide beginning April 12.
