Oz rock icons Midnight Oil have hand-picked 36 songs from their 25-year career for a new compilation. It’ll span two discs and feature remastered audio, liner notes from Rolling Stone’s David Fricke, and rare photos of the band.

Jim Moginie says in a press release, “For this collection, we put our most definitive songs in chronological timeline, so listening feels like a turbo boosted journey at light speed through 25 years of being in Midnight Oil.”

Rob Hirst continues,  “There’s many more favourites we could have included but we had fun writing and recording all of these and loved playing them live. We also think they show the dynamics and diversity of the tracks we recorded in studios in Australia and overseas, and chart the band’s changing sounds, stories and memberships over a 25 year period. We really hope you enjoy Essential Oils.”

There will also be a ‘fan pack’ version of the double-album, which comes with a t-shirt and tote bag and can be pre-ordered from their website.

Essential Oils will be released on Friday 2 November. Check out the track-listing below.
