Art Brut are set to release a 'best of' collection in order to celebrate their 10th anniversary as a band.

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.
