Published Aug 23, 2010When we last reported on the upcoming box set by Scottish indie pop trailblazers Orange Juice, the band nor their label had confirmed the release details of the seven-disc collection. Now, Domino has revealed that the set, which is called Coals to Newcastle, will be coming out on November 9.
According to a press release from the label, Coals to Newcastle "will be comprised of six audio compact discs and one DVD that will contain the band's complete discography and other studio recordings as well as a collection of their BBC sessions." This includes 16 never-before-heard tracks, plus 23 more that have previously never been available digitally.
As for the DVD, it will contain the band's two promotional clips for "Rip It Up" and "What Presence?!," their four performances on The Old Grey Whistle Test, and the rare posthumous concert video Dada with (the) Juice.
There's currently no indication that the band will be playing any reunion shows to celebrate the release. Fans hoping to get a live fix should check out former frontman Edwyn Collins, who will release the solo LP Losing Sleep in September.
He previously told The Line of Best Fit that he would "probably" be working in some classic Orange Juice material into his live set.
