The Cribs are set to give away a free 12-track album with next week's NME.

The Wakefield trio have collected together a series of demos for the CD, which they've titled 'Payola: The Demos'. It will come free with the issue of NME out on February 20 and will work as a companion disc to their new compilation record, 'Payola', which comes out on February 25.

As well as demo versions of well-loved songs including 'Men's Needs', 'Cheat On Me' and 'Another Number', the album will open with the first three demos they ever recorded: 'Happy In Town', 'Diclomax Retard' and 'Melmac'. These three songs have never been released in any format before.

Singer Ryan Jarman said: "We’d done two discs on ‘Payola’, we were thinking of putting those early demos on the B-side disc but it didn’t make sense. So when we got the opportunity to do a CD for NME we wanted to make it a demos disc. When it comes to the first three tracks, we’ve been wanting to put them out for ages, but it never seemed like an appropriate time until now.”

As well as featuring the free CD on the front, the issue of NME out on February 20 will feature an interview with the band about their decade-long career so far, plus content including new music scene reports from each band member, and joint interviews between them and some of their musical heroes. There will also be exclusive new Cribs video interviews going online on NME.COM when the issue's out, so earmark the day in your diary for the ultimate Cribs-fest.

The tracklisting of 'Payola: The Demos' is:

'Happy In Town'
'Diclomax Retard'
'Melmac'
'Another Number'
'Martell'
'Men's Needs'
'I'm A Realist'
