Tindersticks Announce Best Of Compilation, Release New Song

    Tindersticks have announced a new career-spanning compilation titled Past Imperfect – The Best of Tindersticks ’92 – ’21, which is set for release on March 25 via City Slang. Along with the news, they’ve shared the new song ‘Both Sides of the Blade’, which comes with a video starring Suzanne Osborne. The clip was directed by frontman Stuart A. Staples, who wrote the track for Claire Denis’ film Avec amour et acharnement. Check it out below.

    “One of the greatest things I feel in approaching this milestone,” Stuart said of the band’s 30th anniversary, “is that all of the mistakes we’ve made are our mistakes. If there’s something wrong, there’s something wrong because we decided in the moment that this is what we should be and we physically made it that way. I’m kind of proud of that. We’re still here, we’re still connected, we’re still pushing and it’s been totally on our own terms. I can’t really think of many other bands that are in that situation.”

    The first half of Past Imperfect features the original lineup of the band with Staples, drummer Al Macaulay, guitarist Neil Fraser, and multi-instrumentalists David Boulter and Dickon Hinchliffe. The second half includes work from the present-day lineup of Staples, Fraser, Boulter, drummer Earl Harvin, and multi-instrumentalist Dan McKinna.
