Sky Troika EP set for digital release

A Sky EP entitled Troika will be released on digital formats on December 4.

The four-track recording features two versions of the band’s take on Sergei Prokofiev’s classic Christmas piece, which featured on Sky’s 1983 album Cadmium.

It’ll be released via Esoteric Recordings and will also include the tracks Why Don’t We and The Fool On The Hill.

The EP will follow the launch of a Sky 2CD anthology entitled Toccata, which is out on November 27 and features the best of guitarists John Williams and Kevin Peek, keyboardists Steve Gray and Francis Monkman, bassist Herbie Flowers and percussionist Tristan Fry.

Both Troika (opens in new tab) and Toccata are available for pre-order.
