The Places Between: The Best Of Doves Out Today

The Places Between: The Best Of Doves is out today in Europe (April 20th in North America) its available to download right now.

For the best price today for the standard edition, then you want to head over to amazon UK who are offering the 15 track album for £4.99. Amazon also have the deluxe version download for £8.69

If you prefer iTunes, they have the deluxe version with all the videos included for £11.99, the itunes version features the bonus track Brazil. If you prefer to just buy Brazil, you can do that too for 99p as surprisingly its not a “album only” download.

7digital usually tend to offer the best quality download at 320 kbps, though as I write this they don’t have the album up just yet.

If like myself you want the physical product, then do take up offer of £2 off the deluxe version of the album at

Finally, Andalucia the single is also available to purchase today as a download only. The single features an acoustic version of Jetstream. Available at all good download stores.

iTunes Bonus

If you are considering purchasing The Best Of from itunes then you will be lucky enough to receive the bonus track Brazil, which was previously only available on the Winter Hill 7″ vinyl. I doubt the track will be available to buy on its own as with all itunes “exclusives” you have to buy the full thing. With a bit of luck 7digital will sell the track at 320kbps.

iTunes will also be making all the videos available to buy at the store for the first time.

Aeroplane Interview

Thanks to Alan, for sending the link for this interview Aeroplane did, wich has a wee mention of Brazil, which apparently doves didn’t like..

The Doves remix they were kind of upset because there was a really cool guitar that was doing the whole track. We never even tought about keeping the guitar we just skipped to vocal.At the end the remix was completely different than original.That is not what they expected at all.But that is what makes us exciting about remixing

From Norman Records:

DOVES Winter Hill 2009 UK limited edition 2-track 7″ vinyl single – Known locally, ‘Winter Hill’ is a beauty spot between Chorley and Bolton in the West Pennine Moors. It’s famed for its UFO sightings, mining activity, aeroplane disasters and murders but to Doves it clearly means something altogether more magical and ethereal. Already a fan’s favourite, ‘Winter Hill’ ushers the listener in via a pop Reich repetition, all looped effects and soaring synths before morphing into what canonly be described as a love song. Furthermore, on the b-side, there’s a totally different change of pace with the Dylanesque ‘Brazil’, a new track that adds yet another dimension to Doves repertoire!.

Winter Hill is released July 20th. It is expected the download single will feature a host of Jetstream remixes.

Winter Hill Single Update states that the Winter Hill 7″ vinyl will feature the b-side Brazil. There is a CDR promo doing the rounds, which features an image of a snowy railway track. Tracks on the promo are:

1. Winter Hill (Radio Mix) Mixed By Dave Bascombe
2. Winter Hill (Instrumental)

Doves official website is now back online with a temporary homepage. The site had been hosted by Mubito, who recently went bust. We hope to see a fully functioning back soon.
