Simple Minds released 40: THE BEST OF – 1979-2019, a new compilation album that covers all 40 years of the band’s now legendary recording career. It captures their early experimentation, cross over chart successes, right up to their new imperial phase represented by songs from 2015’s Big Music and last year’s Walk Between Worlds, which was their highest chart success in over 20 years, charting at number 4 in the UK.

Compiled in conjunction with the band, 40: THE BEST OF presents the very best of Simple Minds extensive catalogue. It is a comprehensive overview of 40 years of one of Britain’s most successful bands, taking in the innovative sheen of Promised You A Miracle and Glittering Prize, the anthemic sweep of Waterfront and Sanctify Yourself, the firebrand strand of Belfast Child and Mandela Day, the colossus that is Don’t You (Forget About Me) and Alive & Kicking, and bringing things right up to date with the inclusion of a new track: a cover of King Creosote's 2014 Song, For One Night Only.
