Snow Patrol have just announced details of 'Up To Now', a collection of the band's best loved songs, as well as 3 new tracks including forthcoming single 'Just Say Yes'.

Snow Patrol are one of the biggest and boldest bands of the past decade. Over fifteen years and five studio albums, the part Scottish, part Irish five piece have sketched heart-bruised ballads ('Set Down Your Glass') and arm-around-your-best-mate festival anthems ('Run'); radio hits ('Chasing Cars') and moments of painful introspection ('You Could Be Happy'). All of these have been gathered together for 'Up To Now' – a thirty track, double album of singles, cover versions, rarities, album tracks and a handful of new songs as well as compositions by the Reindeer Section – an indie supergroup featuring members of Scotland's guitar elite – Belle and Sebastian, Idlewild and Teenage Fanclub among many others – and co-ordinated by Snow Patrol frontman Gary Lightbody.

Released on the 9th November 'Up To Now' will be available on a two disc CD featuring thirty tracks, and a three disc digipack with an additional DVD which offers two exclusive documentaries, 'The Lightning Strike' animated film and previously unseen live footage.
