The Masses Against the Classes: Manic Street Preachers Comp Coming This Fall

with one comment

Specs for National Treasures, the latest compilation by Manic Street Preachers, have been announced.

The new double-disc set, to be released in the U.K. October 31, presents all of the Welsh alt-rock band’s U.K. singles for Columbia Records, along with one of the band’s early, self-released singles (“Motown Junk”) and a new cover of The The’s “This is the Day,” which will be released as a single later this month.

A host of special packages will be made available from the group’s native country. In addition to the standard double-disc edition and standard deluxe edition, which adds a DVD of music videos and bonus video content, pre-orders from HMV will offer a bonus CD single of “This is the Day” with what looks like a previously unreleased track. buyers, meanwhile, will have their copies autographed by the band. An as-yet un-orderable deluxe box set will include an “38 x vinyl finish CD Singles, a poster, a DVD of all the videos, 7” vinyl of ‘New Art Riot,’ ‘Suicide Alley,’ ‘Jackie Collins Existential Question Time,’ Manics lipstick and vanity mirror and a limited number will also contain a 7” of ‘Motown Junk.'”

The band will commemorate the release – as well as the band’s 25 years together – with a one-off show at London’s O2 Arena in December. Hit the jump for the full track list for the standard compilation. Read the rest of this entry »
