The Irish indie rockers' first album since 2006's The Cost, Longitude is intended as a Frames mixtape of sorts, according to a band press release. Neither a greatest-hits collection nor entirely new, the 12-track set offers mostly old favorites as picked by the band, along with newly recorded versions of "Fitzcarraldo" and "Revelate," and one new song, "None But I." Possibly the final new tune from the band, as frontman Glen Hansard and violinist Colm Mac Con Iomaire continue successful solo careers, the song is a reflective one that plays well with the others. Longitude was mastered by former bandmember Dave Odlum and marks the Frames' 25th anniversary.
