Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark continue their 40th anniversary celebrations with the announcement of Souvenir, a career-spanning seven-disc box set.

This new package features five CDs and two DVDs and is housed in a ten-inch box with a hardcover book, a poster and some 10-inch prints.

CD 1 and CD 2 feature all the band’s singles from ‘Electricity’ to ‘What Have We Done’, as well as a brand new single ‘Don’t Go’.

The third CD contains 22 previously unreleased recordings from the archive – selected and mixed by Paul Humphreys – with titles like ‘Unreleased Idea,’ ‘Organ Ditty,’ and ‘Guitar Thrash’!

Two live shows complete the audio: one from the History of Modern Tour recorded at the Mermaid Theatre in 2011 and a previously unreleased live show from the Dazzle Ships Tour from the Hammersmith Odeon in 1983.

The first of two DVDs contains BBC TV performances from Top Of The Pops, Old Grey Whistle Test, Later With Jools Holland and more. The other contains a live show from the Crush Tour at Sheffield City Hall in 1985, another live show from the Architecture & Morality Tour at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane in 1981, as well as Crush – The Movie.

The book contains the usual ‘unseen photos’, as well as single sleeve artwork, an introduction by Paul Morley and notes to accompany the archive material by Andy McCluskey.

A new 2CD and 3LP greatest hits package – Souvenir – The Singles 1979-2019 (the first two discs in the box, effectively) will also be available separately.

The Souvenir box set will be released on 4 October 2019 via Universal Music
