Steve Miller Band fans pumped to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers during their current summer tour with very special guest Peter Frampton can also look forward to a new career-spanning greatest hits compilation this fall. The multi-platinum sellers will release Steve Miller Band Ultimate Hits on Sept. 15 via Capitol/UMe.
The “Jet Airliner” hitmaker unveiled the news on Aug. 8 at their official Twitter account and premiered an unheard live version of “Space Cowboy” from the compilation on Tuesday at Rolling Stone. Curated by frontman Steve Miller from the band's massive hit-laden back catalogue, fans can chose between a 22-track standard edition or a comprehensive 40-track deluxe edition.
The standard edition features numerous essential hits like “The Joker,” “Rock 'n Me” and “Abracadabra.” Bonus offerings include two previously unheard live covers of “Living In The USA” and “Space Cowboy,” as well as a previously unreleased solo acoustic version of “Seasons.” The deluxe edition features all the hits and bonuses included in the standard edition, as well as a second disc featuring a handful of additional live and studio rarities, including a demo of “Take the Money and Run.”
Steve Miller Band Ultimate Hits is available for preorder in CD and digital formats. The one-CD and standard digital version is available here or the two-CD and deluxe digital version can be preordered here.
Vinyl versions of the two editions will hit shelves on Oct. 27. See below for deluxe edition track listing.
“I’ve been blessed to work with so many wonderful musicians and engineers and friends over the years," writes Miller in a press release posted Tuesday via Universal Music. "I hope you enjoy this as much I did putting this together for you.”
Miller's US summer tour continues Aug. 8 show in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace and will wrap up Aug. 13 in Murphys, Calif. at Ironstone Amphitheatre. Tickets for select dates are available at AXS. For all the latest details on The Steve Miller Band, click here.
