The Postal Service - Such Great Heights album cover
 Such Great Heights was released January 21, 2003 by The Postal Service under the Sub Pop Records label. The EP included the previously released title track "Such Great Heights", one new track "There's Never Enough Time" and two cover tracks by The Shins and Iron & Wine of "We Will Become Silhouettes" and "Such Great Heights," respectively.

The tracks were recorded in Spring 2002, and were written by Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello, and includes backing vocals in the studio recording by Jen Wood, whose other collaborations include work for The Black Heart Procession and Joan of Arc. It was the first CD released by The Postal Service, and a preview of Give Up, which was released a month later.

The title song "Such Great Heights" has exhibited unusual staying power. It has consistently been one of the weekly top 5 most frequently played tracks on social music site since the website begun, holding the top spot for the majority of 2005. The song's reign in the top 10 ended in March 2007, when after the release of Arcade Fire album, Neon Bible, the song did not make it as the top 10 was predominantly songs from Neon Bible. The song was featured on an 2004 episode of Veronica Mars. It has also been used in several television commercials, for organizations such as, Kaiser Permanente, Target, UPS and M&M's and was also featured in the trailer of the movie Garden State. An instrumental version of the song is currently featured as part of UPS's "Whiteboard" ad campaign, which was launched 6 January 2007, almost four years after the song was officially released.

The cover artwork was designed by Kozyndan.
