Art Brut to release 10th anniversary 'best of' collection
'Top Of The Pops' will feature two new songs and come out in April
The Eddie Argos fronted act will release 'Top Of The Pops' on April 16. The two-disc collection will include two brand new songs, 'Arizona Bay' and 'We Make Pop Music', as well as b-sides, cover versions, demos and live material.
In a press release announcing the album, the band wrote:
…it is impossible to begin your career as a classic rock band, no matter how often you persist in referring to yourself as one. Over the last ten years, however, Art Brut have been tirelessly working towards the moment we could finally call ourselves a classic rock band and know in our heart of hearts that it was true. Our mission is finally complete.
