Simple Minds are back: Celebrate – The Greatest Hits – with 2 new tracks
Out on March 25th via Virgin Records is the 2 and 3CD set “Simple Minds – Celebrate – The Greatest Hits” holding with 2 new tracks. The release comes following last year’s “X5″ boxset and the “5 X 5″ tour. The 2 new tracks on this comprehensive overview of 35 years of one of Britain’s most successful bands are “Broken Glass Park” and “Blood Diamonds”.
Jim Kerr has a rather own way to describe the band’s career: “One of the things I’m most proud of is that people say to me what Simple Minds are you talking about? The avant-garde, the art-rock, the pop, the ambient, the instrumental group, the political, the folk, the stadium band? We’ve been on one hell of a journey. To play all those different styles but at the same time be quintessentially Simple Minds is an amazing thing.”
