This week's NME cover stars The Cribs have delayed the release of their compilation album 'Payola' due to a manufacturing error.

In a statement to fans, the band, recently announced as winners of the Outstanding Contribution To Music prize at this year's NME Awards, say: "It's with great disappointment, that we have to announce that the release date of 'Payola' has to be pushed back two weeks to March 11. This is due to a manufacturing error which was completely out of our hands. We, along with our longtime art collaborator Nick Scott, spent months going through the archives and trying to condense a decade into a sleeve that we were all really proud of – a physical record is a beautiful object, something that can often be overlooked in this digital age – and we wanted it to be perfect. It's a significant record to us and we wanted it to be fully representative of the last 10 years of our lives."

"We're really sorry you guys, but it is out of our hands. We had the option of just pushing the physical release date back and still putting the digital out on the original date planned, but that isn't fair to all of you that pre-ordered the vinyl/anthology/CD, and it is against our ethic to do that. As mentioned above we have a great affection for a record you can hold in your hand, read the liner notes of, and enjoy on that level – so to reduce that to an afterthought was never an option."

"In the meantime, we hope you are enjoying the album we gave away with NME today, and that those unreleased tracks are enough to tide you over for now! Thanks for your understanding. We tried man, honestly."

A companion piece to the album, 'Payola The Demos' is presented free with this week's NME, which also features in-depth features with the band. The Cribs are also playing an NME Award Show on Friday (February 22) at Londons' Shepherd's Bush Empire. Tickets are available from www.NME.com/tickets.
