Marc Almond ‘Trials Of Eyeliner’ – 10CD career spanning anthology to be released…
Universal Music have announced the forthcoming release of a full 10CD Marc Almond Boxset; ‘Trials Of Eyeliner’ will be released on the 28th October 2016
Personally curated and overseen by Marc himself, the 10-CD ‘Trials Of Eyeliner’ box set is both the first and the definitive career overview of one of contemporary music’s best respected, most consistently inventive artists;
The collection comprises:
•10 CDs (189 tracks), housed in 2 x 6-page gatefold disc holders within a deluxe 240mm x 240mm slipcase
•Includes all Marc’s singles – including those by Soft Cell and Marc And The Mambas – plus 18 unreleased tracks and many more hard-to-find rarities
•64-page hardcover book featuring a brand new interview/essay by Alexis Petridis and a wealth of photos and other imagery, many from Marc’s own archive.
•Cover art (and more within the package) by renowned graphic artist Stefan Fähler
•Mastering carefully supervised by Marc’s trusted writing partner/musical director, Neal X
The 10-disc set is themed into three sections: the four-disc ‘History’ recounts Marc’s journey via his favourite and best-loved album tracks and B-sides; ‘Singles’ gathers together all of Marc’s official Soft Cell, Mambas and solo singles in (mainly) chronological order for the first time.
Finally the 3-disc section ‘Gems’ pulls together nuggets and rarities from fan-only releases, one-off collaborations, and soundtracks contributions and includes 18 tracks previously unreleased from Marc’s own collection.
For a limited time, the first pre-orders through uDiscover will receive a free EP containing four different versions of If You Go Away recorded at different stages in Marc’s career.
