A CERTAIN RATIO have shared their first new music since 2008’s Mind Made Up and announce the release of acr:set, a career spanning compilation released on coloured double vinyl, CD and digitally on 12 October 2018.

‘Dirty Boy’ is a classic slice of A Certain Ratio pop funk and features the voice of Tony Wilson preparing the band for ‘The Fox’ recording session in his own inimitable fashion, plus vocals from Barry Adamson, who returns a favour to the band after they reworked 2017’s ‘I Got Clothes’.

The two new tracks, ‘Dirty Boy’ and ‘Make It Happen’ were recorded at Oxygene in Manchester, and both appear on the new best of compilation, acr:set. The album is made up of tracks that feature in the band’s incendiary live show (hence the title), and includes rare 7” and 12” mixes alongside the two new recordings and sleeve notes by DJ and writer Dave Haslam.

A Certain Ratio, known for their carnival atmosphere live performances have been playing blistering shows throughout 2017 and 2018, recent sold out dates have included London and Brighton (with Sink Ya Teeth, who recently released their debut album) and Hebden Bridge (with Andrew Weatherall). Forthcoming dates have been announced, and will be followed by 40th anniversary shows next year.
