Doves PR doing the rounds in North America to reflect the new album release date/single details at this side of the pond with a word on the digital release.

Single Release Date: April 6, 2010

The Places Between: The Best of Doves

NEW Release Date: April 20, 2010

To celebrate twelve years since Doves formed and to chronicle a career to inspire envy- with two Mercury nominated albums and worldwide sales of over 2 million- the band will release their definitive collection, The Places Between: The Best of Doves on April 20, 2010. To coincide with this release a new single, “Andalucía” will be released on April 6, 2010.

“Andalucía” was recorded in the barn in Cheshire, England where last year’s critically heralded Kingdom of Rust was recorded. Much of Doves body of work is an ode to the north of England but this song appears to tell of warmer pastures. The song surges towards its rousing final chorus with orchestration colliding with a tender vocal from Jimi Goodwin. “Andalucía” stands alongside Doves finest work and will no doubt seamlessly sit amongst classics such as “Black And White Town”, “Kingdom Of Rust” and “There Goes The Fear”.

The Places Between: The Best of Doves

will be released on April 20 as a deluxe 3 disc package comprising 2 CDs featuring 34 tracks plus a DVD with all of the Doves’ videos. There will be 3 digital versions available: a single component 15-track version, a 2-component 34 track version (there will be an iTunes deluxe version featuring 35 tracks), and a digital video album.

On April 6 the Doves’ new track, “Andalucía” will be available as a digital download single which includes an unavailable elsewhere acoustic version of “Jetstream”.

Andalucia will be released April 5th in the UK, same day as the release of The Places Between. The single will be released by Heavenly with the catalogue number HVN201. Check out the Lovely artwork, shame it’s not seeing a physical release but that’s how music is these days.

Metro: What’s On Jimi’s Ipod

As the promo for the best of starts to crank up, Jimi has given Metro an insight into what’s playing on his ipod at the moment.

History Of Man by Amanaz

I heard this on Steve ‘Sex Pistol’ Jones’s short-lived but ace BBC 6Music show late last year. It’s Zambian psych rock from Amanaz’s 1975 Africa album. It sounds like a black Black Sabbath.

Irene by Caetano Veloso

I love songs that break down and sort of start again. And what a riff. It sounds like they had a ball recording this. You can actually hear the joy.

Ancestors by Gonjasufi

This is super-weird hip hop from Warp Records. I love the blasted vocal on it and the ridiculous beat. Check out the album, A Sufi And A Killer.

Winter Hill Single Update

clickmusic.com 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 doves.net 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 doves.net back soon.

Remixes

Here’s a picture of the new promo that’s now doing the rounds on ebay. Its expected some of these remixes, if not all will be featured on the Winter Hill single, released July 20th.

You can check out the jackbeadle remix of Jetstream at his myspace page here. We like it!
