This final release from super Scottish legends Runrig who have entertained and enjoyed a remarkable career of 40 plus years.

With the upcoming run of farewell Runrig Concerts, the band is set to celebrate and recognise this momentous summer with a significant compilation CD release.

"The Ones That Got Away album release is a collection of songs, some better known than others, but ones that showed a side of the band, often overlooked. There are so many recordings featuring the Celtic, Gaelic, tribal sound of the band, but there was a desire to put together a collection of songs with more of a crossover/ mainstream appeal. Crucial to the album was to record, or re-record, a track by way of 'swansong' – a new recording that would act as the lead track, and as a specific single release. Somewhere from The Story was identified as the song that spoke to that, and the band set about completely re-recording it, this time bringing out a different character to the song, as a duet featuring Bruce and Julie Fowlis. They got Calum Malcolm ('Big Wheel', 'Amazing Things' etc) in to produce it and we are really excited at the results!
