Status Quo have set a July 9, 2013, release date for their new double album, which will be entitled Bula Quo! which was inspired by their very first feature film of the same name.
The first disc features nine brand new tracks, written as the soundtrack for the movie and the second disc will feature exclusive reworked studio songs or live versions of 10 classic Quo hits that also featured in the film (including an amazing Fijian-style rendition of "Living On An Island").
"Making the film in Fiji was a fantastic experience and we couldn't help but be inspired by our surroundings," states vocalist/lead guitarist Francis Rossi. "We had no plans to write and release a new studio album as well as filming our parts for the movie, it just happened."
Rick Parfitt adds, "We hope that Quo fans will enjoy the film, which is certainly something new for the band, but we know they are going to love the music."
