25 October 2019
In continuation of what’s been one of the most prolific creative streaks of their 15 year career, Editors have today announced the release of their best of album Black Gold, out October 25th via Play It Again Sam. Black Gold will include 13 tracks from their 6 studio albums, alongside 3 brand new offerings: ‘Upside Down’, summer festival anthem ‘Frankenstein’ (watch the supernatural video here) and the gothically dramatic title track ‘Black Gold’ - out today.
Black Gold’s cover photograph was shot by award winning photographer Nadav Kander and the album artwork was designed by celebrated graphic designer Tom Hingston (Massive Attack, Chemical Brothers, The Rolling Stones). The album also comes in a deluxe 2CD version, which includes a second disc of 8 stripped back recordings of tracks from the band’s catalogue titled ‘Distance: The Acoustic Recordings’.
Black Gold is a chance to reflect on the past 15 years, but it also offers a glimpse into a very exciting future for one of the UK’s most enduring and perhaps unexpected musical success stories of this century.
