'Cleaning Out The Ashtrays' is a four volume collection of b-sides, album outtakes, alternate mixes and pretty much everything recorded from 1990 until 2006 which was at least at one point intended for commercial release. Demos are not included unless they were actually b-sides. A demos collection is a possibility for the future.

Press Release :
The snows are too deep, the frosts way too sharp, to do any spring cleaning in New England. Best to wait even for the baking summers to pack their bags and for the leaves to glow red and gold before attempting to put any real order into your life up here.

For singer/songwriter Lloyd Cole, now then is the time for 'Cleaning Out the Ashtrays' - for sorting through dusty boxes of cassettes, DAT tapes and CDs in his Easthampton hideaway, to take stock and try to make sense of all that forgotten music. All those lost songs; half remembered sessions, much-missed friends and fellow-musicians and gifted co-producers. A goldmine of music from 21 years as a solo artist.

Here, then, are 59 - count 'em - nuggets from the Cole vaults. Four CDs bursting with alternate versions, rare b-sides, cover sessions (Lou Reed, Marc Bolan and Leonard Cohen songs among them), and a few tracks that the record companies - and on occasion, even Lloyd himself - just didn't get at the time.

The launch of the new Lloydcole.com, along with a healthy appetite for touring his folk singer set around the world, has helped establish a vibrant online community of Cole fans. Countless queries about lost b-sides and rumoured remixes sowed the seeds of the 'Cleaning Out the Ashtrays' project which Cole has researched and compiled himself.

Now, all of us can share in the riches that lay hidden inside that dusty old box.

Lloyd Cole will play in the UK and France after the new year.
