The Manic Street Preachers have teamed up with Q to release a special version of their forthcoming singles collection National Treasures with our next issue, Q304, which celebrates our 25th birthday.
The limited edition version of the magazine (which will run in addition to our regular issue) featuring the band on the cover, will come with a exclusive 14 song vinyl, featuring unique artwork (pictured), 13 songs from the new collection and a previously released cover of John Cale's The Endless Plain Of Fortune which will only be available with the magazine.
The special issue of Q can be ordered from Greatmagazines.co.uk/QManics from 27 September, and will be available in selected WH Smiths shops from 13 October. It costs £12.99.
The tracklist (below) was selected by Nick Wire and Q Editor-In-Chief Paul Rees, with the latter explaining: "I can think of no better way to mark Q's 25th anniversary than by producing this special issue in tandem with the Manics. They're one of the bands intrinsically woven into the fabric of Q's history. And the whole concept of rewarding fans of a band or artist with something genuinely unique and giving other music lovers the chance to discover something that may be new to them will be as significant a part of Q's present and future."
Q's National Treasures vinyl track list is:
You Love Us
From Despair To Where
La Tristesse Durera (Scream To A Sigh)
If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next
You Stole The Sun From My Heart
Let Robeson Sing
Your Love Alone Is Not Enough
(It's Not War) Just The End Of Love
The Endless Plain Of Fortune (previously unreleased and exclusive to this album)
The full version of National Treasures is released on 31 October. See Manicstreetpreachers.com for more information.
Meanwhile the 25th birthday issue of Q will feature 25 different artists and 25 different covers and will be on UK newsstands Tuesday, 27 September.
We'll have news of who else is featuring in this special edition soon.
