Electronic act Recoil — aka former Depeche Mode keyboardist Alan Wilder — will release a new best-of compilation called Selected in single- and double-disc formats this spring and will embark on a tour the U.S. and Europe, the musician announced today on his official website.
Arriving “most likely” in April or May, Selected represents “a selection of classic Recoil tracks chosen by Alan Wilder,” who notes: “The collection is made up of my personal favorites, remastered and edited together into what I consider a cohesive and total listening experience.” The set also will be released in a 2CD edition featuring “a second disc including many new remixes and alternative versions, again chosen and edited together by Alan and Paul Kendall.”
Wilder — who recorded five studio albums as Recoil between 1988 and 2007 — also announced plans for a “Recoil events tour” to take place between March and May in the U.S. and across Europe. Dates will be announced shortly, the musician said, promising fans “can expect some interesting developments as each city is confirmed.”
