    Currently unreleased, but alluded to by Josh and teased live.

In a video for Inside The Mix, Andrew Scheps states that the band tracked fifty songs during the I’m With You sessions: “Not just basic tracks of fifty songs, actually almost finished recording fifty songs, including final lead vocals.” That means there are over twenty “almost finished” songs yet to be heard.

ALTERNATES/ MIX DIFFERENCES:

  • Look Around - Rock Band DLC
    On the Rock Band DLC, the recording of Look Around contains its original intro - which is also played live by the band (which Josh will sometimes incorporate some interesting teases into).

  • Ethiopia - Unreleased
    Prior to release, Ethiopia had a saxophone solo performed by Joshua Redman, most likely during the bridge. This was either deleted or the song was edited down.
