Press Release :
Tru Thoughts will be releasing the Tru Thoughts Compilation in September with a recommended retail price of just 99p in the UK, and similarly nominal sums elsewhere.

Bringing together some of the most popular songs on the Tru Thoughts catalogue and a sprinkling of timeless instrumentals, from world-respected acts including Quantic, Bonobo, Alice Russell, Nostalgia 77, Belleruche, Hot 8 Brass Band and Stonephace (featuring the Portishead guitarist Adrian Utley), the compilation is packed with quality. Alongside these Tru Thoughts signings, past and present, you'll also find an impressive roll call of guest artists, including rising UK soul singer of the moment Andreya Triana (Ninja Tune); BRIT nominated blues/jazz singer Beth Rowley (Universal), whose 2009 debut album went Top 10 in the UK charts; and remixer Ashley Beedle, who scored a UK No. 1 single as one half of X-Press 2 with the worldwide smash hit "Lazy".

In addition to the musical pedigree on offer here, the Tru Thoughts Compilation's striking cover artwork features the painting, ‘Destiny', by the rising US-based street artist René Gagnon, making for an all-round irresistible physical package, all for roughly the price of a couple of single track downloads. A fantastic introduction to the label for the uninitiated, and a handy bonus buy for those in the know, the aim is to re-emphasise the satisfaction and value that can be found in the legal purchase of good quality music, with the obvious bonus of introducing a new set of music lovers to the oeuvre of Tru Thoughts, one of the UK's foremost independent labels.

Rich Medina "I'm one of the greatest Tru Thoughts fans on the planet."
Neal Sugarman (owner of Daptone Records) "Tru Thoughts is the type of label that inspired me to own and run a record label."
Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio 1): "Tru Thoughts, Brighton – that's what it's all about!"
Laurent Garnier: "I love the Tru Thoughts label."
