The Coronas

The Best Of The Early Days: Vinyl LP


Release date: 24 November, 2023

The Best of The Early Days is a dozen tracks compiled from The Coronas’ first three albums, all only now being released on vinyl, plus a special new song, closer One Last Time.

Four songs each come from their 2007 debut Heroes or Ghosts, their 2009 breakthrough Tony Was an Ex-Con (winner of Best Album at 2010’s Meteor Awards, to which they beat U2 and Snow Patrol) and 2011’s Closer to You, their first Irish chart-topper.

Currently beloved for their cinematic, melancholic pop, The Coronas’ ever-evolving sound is captured on The Best of The Early Years. Far From Here and Listen Dear are spiky rockers. Someone Else’s Hands is an emotional grenade. Spine-tingling piano ballad Warm, the gorgeous, acoustic Heroes or Ghosts and deftly-dancey opener Addicted To Progress are all chapters in an extraordinary, near 20 year career.
