Simply Red announces the release of Simply Red, ‘The Greatest Hits 25’.

November 17th sees the ultimate album release by Simply Red; their definitive ‘Greatest Hits' on their own simplyred.com label.

A Limited Edition 3 disc set with a 25 track DVD will also be available.

Simply Red's shimmering pop soul and elegantly heartworn balladry have provided a glistening, emotional soundtrack to our turbulent times. Their phenomenal career has spanned three decades; they’ve released 10 studio albums racking up over fifty million global sales, notched up over 30 top 40 UK singles, won countless awards including 3 Brits, 2 Ivor Novellos and a Mobo Special Achievement. They gained the rarest prize for a British artist with not just one, but TWO number one hits in the USA; the album ‘Stars’ was the biggest selling album in the UK for two consecutive years and they have played over 1000 live shows to over 10 million people.

Early in 2009 they embark on a massive Greatest Hits World tour, coinciding with the 25th Anniversary of the band forming. They will play to over a million people by the end of the tour in 2010, starting out in Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Brazil, Chile and the USA before heading back to the UK and Europe. Full details will be announced here first very soon, including 10 UK Arena shows next April. The tour will be previewed at the O2 Arena December 3rd. which is already sold out.

Quite simply, this is one greatest hits collection that lives up to its name.
