James have announced the release of a double album and a new tour, both featuring a full orchestra and gospel choir in celebration of their band’s 40th anniversary.

The double album will feature new versions of their greatest hits, fan favourites and deep cuts, as well as a brand new track. Recorded with a 22 piece orchestra and gospel choir, the album is arranged and conducted by Joe Duddell.

One of Britain’s most enduring success stories, James have released 16 studio albums, selling over 25 million copies with their recent run of top five albums proving to be a golden era for the band. All The Colours Of You released in 2021 was their most critically acclaimed in many years, and was supported by an arena tour that became their biggest selling and most successful to date – proving that as they approach their fourth decade as a band James show no signs of slowing down.
