That’s right, Fatboy Slim has a greatest hits album, a new single, and a DVD on the way to help make this another huge summer…
This is in addition to the Fatboy Slim gig at Loch Ness on 24th June which sold out sold out in hours. The Beach Party at Portrush on 17th June is almost sold out too. Fatboy Slim headlines at Global Gathering on 29th July and will be headlining the JJB Arena at this year’s V Festival on 19th & 20th August.
The Greatest Hits brings together all the huge records that helped make Fatboy Slim the biggest dance artist and DJ on the planet. The album includes all the hit Fatboy Slim singles, alongside remixes for Cornershop and Groove Armada, plus two exclusive new tracks Champion Sound and forthcoming single That Old Pair Of Jeans. Across the 18 tracks, The Greatest Hits contains ten top 20 singles and, with classic cuts Brimful Of Asha and Praise You, it has two number 1’s. The legendary fat kid from the You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby returns on the cover. This is a celebration of dance music’s biggest moments from one of the biggest names around.
There will also be a limited edition of The Greatest Hits album – this special version of the album comes with a Bonus DVD of ten genre defining and award winning Fatboy videos. Fatboy Slim’s videos have always been very special. The video for Praise You has been voted the best music video of all time, while Weapon Of Choice featuring Christopher Walken picked up a Grammy. This will be the first time they have been compiled together. A full DVD release entitled The Greatest Hits – Why Make Videos will follow on the 17th July. Full details to be announced soon.
After huge Big Beach shows in Sydney and Brazil already this year, Fatboy Slim brings his beach party back to the British Isles for the first time in years. The reaction has been electric. Fatboy Slim at Loch Ness on the 24th June sold out in hours and The Beach Party at Portrush on the 17th June isn’t far behind. Fatboy Slim headlines Global Gathering in England on the 29th July and also the JJB Arena at V Festival on the 19th and 20th August.
