Primal Scream have announced a mammoth singles album, covering four decades of their career. Maximum Rock ‘N’ Roll: The Singles will feature 31 tracks from their early C86 beginning, Screamadelica era, the Stones-like Rock 'n' Roll of Jailbird and Rocks, electro-Stooges XTRMNTR phase, and up to 2016’s ‘Chaosmosis.

Released on CD, download and 2 double LPs.

Bobby Gillespie had this to say: “Right from our 1985 debut All Fall Down onward we’ve approached singles as an aesthetic choice, a statement of where we are as a band. We grew up with Suffragette City and Metal Guru flying out of the radio. The four Sex Pistols singles were great. Public Image by PiL sounded like nothing else. Prince and Madonna made amazing hits. That has been our approach. I’ve always loved Top 40 pop radio, I love greatest hits albums like The Who’s Meaty, Beaty, Big & Bouncy. I remember Alan McGee saying of Higher Than The Sun: it won’t be a hit, but it will be a statement. Great singles can get out into the world and show people an alternative way of thinking. They make you feel less alone.”
