The Kooks Announce Greatest Hits Collection


Following the announcement of their ‘Best Of’ headline tour, which sold out in less than a week, The Kooks have announced a collection of their greatest hits.

The Best Of…So Far will be released via Virgin EMI Records on19th May and will include classic singles, and fan favourites such as ‘Naive,’ ‘She Moves In Her Own Way,’ and ‘Bad Habit’ plus two brand new tracks, the lead single, ‘Be Who You Are’ and ‘Broken Vow.’ Listen to ‘Be Who You Are’ now on our New Release Playlist! 

Having spent over a decade together as a band, The Kooks felt it was time to celebrate all of their biggest and favourite tunes. Listened to regularly through popular playlists on various streaming services, hits such as ‘Naive’ are still being discovered where it is a constant feature in Spotify’s Top 200.

Lead singer Luke said, “It’s been the greatest pleasure to work, travel, fight, hate and love the best and most talented people I’ve met in my life. It’s the greatest job in the world and we don’t intend to stop any time soon.”

Since the quartet burst onto the scene in 2006 with their unstoppable debut Inside In/Inside Out, which went 5x platinum at the end of last year, the Brighton based four-piece have gone from strength to strength. Now, with three more studio albums, a number of massive world tours, awards and critical acclaim under their belts, it was clear that the indie rockers’ ten-year anniversary is a significant occasion to celebrate their momentous career so far with a tour and album release of all of their greatest hits.

During the live shows, fans will be given the chance to see performances of classic singles, B-Sides as well as brand new music that the band have been dedicating time to in the studio the past few months, which is just a taste of what’s to come.

Additionally, the band have been confirmed for various festival appearances this summer at Isle of Wight Festival, TRNSMT, Liverpool Sound City with more to be announced!
