Alt-rock band Framing Hanley will re-issue its 2020 album, Envy next year in an expanded package.

The band made the announcement Friday through a news release. The document did not state when the record was set for release. In anticipation of the record’s re-issue, Framing Hanley debuted a stripped down version of its song, ‘Built For Sin‘ Thursday, that is expected for inclusion in the re-issue. Its premiere was accompanied by that of a companion visualizer.

‘Built For Sin’ was originally featured in Framing Hanley’s 2007 album, The Moment. The new version takes the song in a more semi-acoustic approach, deepening the emotion in the song’s lyrical theme.

Front man Kenneth Nixon talked about the updated take of the song in a prepared statement.

“‘Built For Sin’ was the third song we wrote for our debut album The Moment,” said Nixon.  “I remember when we were tracking that song I felt “oh, wow, we’re really hitting our stride now as far as ‘finding our sound.” That song resonated with our fan base and was always, from day one, a song that the crowd sang every word to — despite it never being a single.”

Added Nixon, “When we discussed reimagining some of our older catalog, a piano version of ‘Built For Sin’ was always something I had thought would be cool.  I sat with [drummer] Shad [Teems] and we came up with an arrangement in a matter of minutes and it all just happened organically.  I said from the beginning that if we were going to re-do any of our older songs, they had to be better than the original.  To me — this did just that..”
