DRIVE BY TRUCKERS READY FOR A GREATEST HITS

Drive By Truckers
In their 13 years of recording, the Drive-By Truckers haven’t come very close to having a hit single, but they’ve amassed more than enough material for a “greatest hits” compilation (maybe even two).

The Alabama-via-Georgia rockers will release Ugly Buildings, Whores and Politicians: Greatest Hits 1998-2009 on August 2 on New West Records, according to Pitchfork. The album features songs from seven of the Truckers albums (excluding their two most recent records for ATO Records). Included in the tracklist: tributes to Ronnie Van Zant and Neil Young (“Ronnie and Neil”), Sun Records (“Carl Perkins’ Cadillac”) and a nearly missed ménage a trois (“3 Dimes Down”).
