The Essential Swing Out Sister


Salvo Music are issuing  a new Swing Out Sister hits collection in October.

The Essential Swing Out Sister is a 17-track, single CD compilation which gathers together the band’s six UK top 40 singles (including top 10 hits Breakout and Surrender) along with other 45s and fan favourites.

The late Frankie Knuckles is remembered by the inclusion of his Classic Club Mix of Notgonnachange (the original version featured on 1992’s Get In Touch With Yourself) and a previously unreleased ‘big band’ version of Forever Blue is the attraction for die-hard fans. Twilight World is offered in its album form – the Superb, Superb Mix.

This release will be issued on 6 October 2014, but before that the Japan-only, Ultimate Collection (30th Anniversary Best) is in the schedules for a late August release. Early research suggests that this SHM-CD will share a track listing with The Essential Swing Out Sister, but that is not yet confirmed.

Swing Out Sister are currently working on their next studio album (available via PledgeMusic) and are preparing to play eight dates in Japan at the beginning of September.
