Coming soon.. The best of The Verve

The legacy of U.K. rock act the Verve will be celebrated on the CD “This Is Music: The Singles 92-92” and a “Best of” DVD of music videos. The projects will arrive Nov. 1 internationally via Virgin; a spokesperson for the North American arm of the label says the items are not presently on the release schedule. Of greatest interest to fans will be the inclusion on “This Is Music” of the previously unreleased tracks “Monte Carlo” and “This Could Be My Moment,” recorded during sessions for the Verve’s 1997 swan song, “Urban Hymns.” Beyond the international smash hit “Bittersweet Symphony,” the disc also features such favorites as “Slide Away,” “Lucky Man,” “The Drugs Don’t Work,” “On Your Own” and “Sonnet.” The DVD sports videos for all cuts on “This Is Music” save for the two previously unreleased tracks. It also boasts the alternate U.S. version of the “Lucky Man” video. Former Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft is at work on his third solo album, the follow-up to 2002’s “Human Conditions.”
