The Apples in stereo are currently deep in the studio working on their upcoming seventh album, Travelers in Space and Time. While we patiently await those new sounds, though, the Apples are getting ready to reward fans with a compilation of the best cuts from their previous six records. The Music Mix can exclusively reveal that #1 Hits Explosion will arrive in stores this September 1 via Yep Roc Records. In addition to over a dozen Apples favorites, the set will also come with 16 pages of detailed liner notes, including contributions from Jeff Kuykendall, who edits the thorough Elephant 6 fan site Optical Atlas.
Click through to the jump for the full #1 Hits Explosion track list, plus a suitably trippy YouTube clip for 1999’s “Strawberryfire,” my own favorite song of the bunch. Anyone else looking forward to this Explosion?
