Art Brut Announce New Compilation Album A Record Collection, Reduced to a Mixtape


Art Brut have announced a new compilation album, A Record Collection, Reduced to a Mixtape. For the 2xLP or 5xCD set, the south London indie-pop institution selected highlights from its albums Bang Bang Rock & Roll, It’s a Bit Complicated, Art Brut vs Satan, and Brilliant! Tragic!, along with demos, alternate takes, and live recordings from its 2003-2008 heyday. The CD collection, titled And Yes, This Is My Singing Voice!, comes with a zine and an Eddie Argos essay in the liner notes; it’s the first in a two-part set that will collect all of Art Brut’s output. Check out the vinyl tracklist below.

In 2013, Art Brut released another best-of compilation, Top of the Pops.
