The Distractions will release their new compilation album via Occultation Recordings in early 2011. Entitled Nothing it will include the 12" debut EP, the classic FAC 12 (Time Goes By So Slow b/w Pillow Fight), half a dozen tracks recorded in the mid-90s and possibly more. The Distractions' one and only album to date, Nobody's Perfect, is not available for release at the moment due to licensing restrictions.

Meanwhile, the band are about to release their first new material in three decades, following last month's digital release of some mid-90s material, the Black Velvet EP (and a track on Scream City SC5.1). Recorded in Liverpool this summer with original Distractions, Steve Perrin and Mike Finney, the Come Home EP will be released on 12" vinyl and digitally with a limited number of CD promos also available.

Official release date is expected to be mid-late November, but vinyl/CD orders will receive free mp3s immediately.
