About this Album

This limited-edition 12" vinyl single, features the Homeland album track "Only an Expert"—which Q calls "a bitingly satirical, genuinely funny, quietly angry and surprisingly danceable dissection on the very notion of subservience to expertise"—with the non-album track "Pictures and Things," featuring Antony Hegarty, on the flip side.

Note: The copies of this single that were signed by Anderson and included with the first 250 orders of Homeland, are no longer available.
