The The announce multi-format project ‘The Comeback Special’


The The have announced a new multi-format project called ‘The Comeback Special’.

The band’s forthcoming release documents their Royal Albert Hall concert from June 5, 2018, and will be accompanied by a live album, film and book.

The The will also be launching a variety of other exclusive products, including an exquisitely designed 136-page Art Book, featuring six discs, exclusive photos, audio content plus director Tim Pope’s “beautifully shot, unobtrusive film” of the show.
