Birds Of Tokyo To Release Singles Collection

Birds of Tokyo have rounded up the singles from their 10 years together for a best of album ‘Playlist’.

Birds of Tokyo have been one of the more radio-friendly rock acts of the last 10 years which has given their songs a high profile.

“Yeah we hear that a lot”, said singer Ian Kenny. “Whenever we play a festival someone always comes up afterwards and says, ‘I didn’t know you guys did that song and that song’. I never know what to say. Maybe now I can just tell them to listen to this album and then they’ll basically be up to speed!”

‘Playlist’ was designed as a snapshot collection for the international market. “We needed to give American music industry people a quick sense of what the band was all about so we created a playlist that had a couple of key tracks off each album.” Kenny said.

Drummer Adam Weston said the sheer number of singles even amazed the guys in the band. “After we first put it together on Soundcloud we listened back to the whole thing and we were actually kinda surprised. It was like we’d gone for a long walk and when we eventually paused to look back we realized we’d travelled a lot further than we thought,” he said.

‘Playlist – A Singles Collection’ will be released in November.
