NME to release 'NME Presents The 90s' compilation album
Blur, Oasis, Radiohead and Sleeper appear on the three-CD bumper set
The three-CD collection will be released on November 11 and features over 50 of the decade's most influential artists, handpicked by NME, including tracks from definitive 90s bands including Radiohead, Ash, The Verve, Happy Mondays, Primal Scream and The Cure.
The '90s was a decade that saw a vast number of genres change the face of music forever. Oasis, Blur and Pulp helped turn Britpop into a cultural phenomenon, Radiohead reinvented not just themselves but modern pop music, hip-hop entered a new golden age via Wu-Tang Clan and The Notorious BIG, while The Prodigy, Underworld and Fatboy Slim led a dance music revolution.
NME Editor Mike Williams says: "You only need to look at how influential these artists are in 2013 to understand why the '90s were such a big deal for music, and such a big deal for NME. Every single artist on this album still resonates today, every single artist still matters."
'NME Presents The 90s' will be released on Monday 11th November, but it is available to pre-order now from iTunes and Amazon.
