On 26 June, The Frames will release “Longitude” – a compilation of songs chosen by the band, including new versions of Revelate & Fitzcaraldo and a new song called None But I, which you can listen to down below. Rob & the band will be performing 3 gigs in Ireland in July in honor of The Frames’ 25th anniversary.
“This is a collection of songs from throughout the twenty five years we’ve been a band. We initially wanted to mark this anniversary with a sort of ‘Best of The Frames’. We put together a few different versions, including a certain number of songs from each record and including more popular live and radio songs – but this felt forced and incongruous. After many conversations amongst ourselves we decided it should simply be a collection of our favourite tunes, songs we would be happy to put on a mix-tape for a friend. So, here it is, with no regard to what album is most or least represented. It’s a short collection of tunes we are proud of, some in slightly different versions from the original recordings, and one new song. This is not the sum of our career but maybe some of the songs where we felt we had broken through to a new place or gotten better as a band. We hope you like it….we hope you enjoy it.” – GH
