Hankies at the ready...

Mansun are to release their last ever single next month.

‘Slipping Away’ is released on September 20 and was taken from sessions intended for the fourth album the band were working on when they split.

Now, those sessions, along with B-sides, EP tracks and rarities will be collected on a 3CD compilation, ‘Kleptomania’.

The album, out September 27, also includes rare and unseen pictures and extensive sleeve notes by singer Paul Draper – sure to delight the band’s notoriously vociferous fanbase.
