Shards (Rarities & Demos) is a compilation album by Prism, released on February 7, 2018. It was both produced and mixed by Prism in LittleBigPlanet 3 during 2015 and contains unreleased tracks, demos, alternative mixes, b-sides and a remix recorded during the Glitter Clouds sessions (besides the track 'Sowlarr Flayde', which was recorded during the Solar Fade EP sessions).

The album was remastered and re-released the day after initial release on February 8, 2018. It was then re-issued on February 17, 2018 as Velociporters Are Ace (Thelapaw's Got Drums Remix) was added. It was re-issued once more on March 20, 2018 as Midnight Hour (Demo) was added.

TracksEdit

Droid MachinesEdit

Droid Machines is notable for being the only track from the Glitter Clouds sessions that Prism actively disliked. The track was originally released in 2015 as the b-side to Delta 3000X. The track samples a song by JukeBox XI creator robbit10 titled 'SNS (Some Nameless Song)', which Billy Anderson released a remix of on his 2015 remix album Change..

Glitter Clouds (Demo)Edit

The original version of Glitter Clouds before BicoastalClock was introduced to the project.

Midnight Hour (Demo)Edit

The original version of Midnight Hour before it was decided to replace the piano instrument in order for it to fit more with the electronic sound of the rest of the album. At this time the track was titled 'Sour Flour Pots'.

Upside-Down Wondertown (Demo)Edit

Upside-Down Wondertown was revised and re-issued several times throughout 2015, this is the original issue.

Velociporters Are Ace (Acoustic Mix)Edit

Originally released as the b-side to Upside-Down Wondertown. The track was not considered a remix by Prism, and was almost included as a bonus track to the Glitter Clouds album.

Velociporters Are Ace (Sleepy Time Mix)Edit

Created at a similar time to the acoustic mix, and also considered to be the b-side for the Upside-Down Wondertown single but remained unreleased. Like the Acoustic Mix, the Sleepy Time Mix was not considered a remix and was almost included as a bonus track to the Glitter Clouds album.

Don't Have ChildrenEdit

A demo track which Prism disliked enough to discontinue progress for the Glitter Clouds album. Sounds of babies crying and a sample of a Marlon Random line (from LittleBigPlanet 3's campaign) were then added and it was released as a comedy b-side for Velociporters Are Ace.

fRedEdit

Another demo track which Prism disliked enough to discontinue progress for the Glitter Clouds album. The track was then intentionally poorly remixed to become a comedy b-side for a future single release.

Sowlarr FlaydeEdit

A remix of the title track from Solar Fade EP, intended to be a comedy b-side for the single release before it was decided to turn it into an EP. It's the only track on the album not recorded during the Glitter Clouds sessions.

Velociporters Are Ace (Thelapaw's Got Drums Remix)Edit

A 2015 remix of Velociporters Are Ace by former T-Games member Dillon M.. The only track on the album not to have been created within LittleBigPlanet 3.
