Editors have announced details of new ‘best of’ album ‘Black Gold’, as well as sharing the brand new title track and announcing details of a UK and European 2020 tour.
Arriving on October 25, ‘Black Gold’ will include 13 tracks from their six studio albums (from their breakthrough debut ‘The Back Room’) to 2018’s acclaimed ‘Violence‘, as well as the three new songs ‘Upside Down’, recent single ‘Frankenstein’ and today’s new release ‘Black Gold’. There will also be a deluxe 2CD version, which includes a second disc of eight stripped back renditions called ‘Distance: The Acoustic Recordings’.
In support of the record, the band will embark on a lengthy 27 date UK and European tour – including a show at London’s Wembley Arena.
“To still be doing this is something I’m very proud of,” said frontman Tom Smith. “These days longevity might not be seen as cool, but I think it is. We’ve solidified what this new version of the band is, and I think the new songs show that the band are hungry.
“We’ve always felt like outsiders, but wanted to write songs that connect with people emotionally, and resonate in a deeper way. That can sound pretentious and contrived, but there are people out there that our band mean a lot to. That’s what I always wanted.”
