The Quireboys have announced their ninth album, St Cecilia And The Gypsy Soul, will be launched on March 30 in a four-disc set.
The package comes via Off Yer Rocka Records and includes 2009’s out-of-print Halfpenny Dancer plus two discs covering the unreleased 2010 Halfpenny Dancer live show, featuring fiddles, pedal steel, mandolin, banjo and more.
The 10-track album, recorded in Sweden, will be preceded by an EP called _Gracie B _on March 16.
Quireboys frontman Spike says: “The plan was always to record some new acoustic songs and rework some originals – but the plan changed. The vibe got better and better and we just went with the flow.
“This side of the band needs to heard.”
