British rock act James is set to release their greatest hits at the end of the month.
Titled James: The Best Of, the 18-track album will be released on Mercury in the U.K. and Canada on March 24. As of now there are no plans for a U.S. release. The collection culls the band’s greatest hits from the last 15 years, and features two new songs, “Destiny” and “Run Aground.”
James will follow the release of The Best Of with a short tour of England and Scotland. That road trip will start with a two-night stint at Manchester’sApollo Theatre on April 10 and 11. From there, the band heads to Glasgow’s Barrowlands on April 13, Doncaster’s The Dome on April 14 and London’s Brixton Academy on April 17.
Plans for a new studio album, set for a fall release, are currently in the works.
In related news, Money, a James side project, has started to get a lot of recognition. The techno dance outfit — which does not feature James’ quirky frontman Tim Booth — has been seen performing at various clubs around London.
