OMD have announced a brand new 40th anniversary career-spanning boxset and comprehensive singles collections. “Souvenir – The Singles 1979-2019” will be released on October 4th on 2CD and 3LP formats. It is a comprehensive collection of all 39 OMD singles from “Electricity” to “What Have We Done”, plus a brand new 40th single, “Don’t Go” which you can listen to below.

A limited edition 5CD+2DVD career spanning boxset will also be released. Discs 1 and 2 are the same as the 2CD format – the 40 singles in chronological order. Disc 3 is a collection of 22 unheard and unreleased tracks from the OMD archive, newly mixed by Paul Humphreys. Some of these are unfinished ideas, others are full unreleased songs. Disc 4 is a full live recording from the Mermaid Theatre in London, February 2011. The show was for BBC Radio 2 in support of the “History of Modern” album. Disc 5 is a newly discovered full live recording from the Hammersmith Odeon in May 1983 in support of the “Dazzle Ships” album. Disc 6 is a DVD featuring 23 OMD performances on the BBC spanning from ‘The Old Grey Whistle Test’ in April 1980 to ‘Later With Jools Holland’ in May 2013. Disc 7 is a DVD featuring a live recording from the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in December 1981 in support of the “Architecture & Morality” album. It also includes a live recording from Sheffield City Hall, June 1985 in support of the “Crush” album and the long-awaited DVD debut of “Crush – The Movie”.

The boxset also contains a book and artwork prints; the book itself contains unseen photos, single sleeve artwork, an introduction by Paul Morley and sleeve notes to accompany the archive material by Andy McCluskey.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
