Simple Minds / Acoustic


Simple Minds have recorded an acoustic album of some of their best-known songs, for release in November.

The appropriately named Simple Minds Acoustic sees the band put away the synths for “stripped down and re-imagined” reinterpretations of hits such as Someone Somewhere in Summertime, Alive and Kicking and Don’t You (Forget About Me). Promised You A Miracle features fellow Scot, KT Tunstall.

It’s available on CD and LP but rather unusually, the heavyweight vinyl 2LP version features three bonus tracks. It also comes with a download code for all 15 songs. That Amazon UK price is nonsense, and we can expect that to come down dramatically.


There were 100 signed copies on the band’s website yesterday, but they sold out within minutes, unfortunately. Simple Minds Acoustic is released on 11 November 2016.

Update: The official Simple Minds site currently links to a SIGNED version of the CD on Amazon UK. I have now included this below, along with the original CD and vinyl links.
