“The JokerSteve” is probably the most famous song of Steve Miller Band, the must-have song in every pub’s jukebox.
This year, Steve decides to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first two Steve Miller Band albums, Children Of The Future and Sailor by preparing a new catalog deal with Capitol/UMe and an upcoming Ultimate Hits set. A vinyl box set, also with bonus tracks, is being prepared for 2018, along with more touring to commemorate the 50th anniversary.
The compilation ha been personally curated by Miller who said: “I had controlled different parts of (the catalog), The 50th anniversary is coming up next year, so we decided it was time to just start looking at everything and put it all together, and create a situation where we can have one company represent it worldwide and coordinate all the reissues and everything. It’s turned out to be a really good idea.”
The band have just released a new version of the single “Seasons” from 1969’s Brave New World album. Ultimate Hits will be released on September 15. The band’s new work is full of live performances and stellar collaborations with the likes of Paul McCartney to Brian Wilson.
