Sony Music is set to release what looks suspiciously like the soundtrack to a Scottish post-independence party.

Arriving too late for the Commonwealth Games, ‘Made In Scotland’ spans the past five decades over three CDs includes big names like Emeli Sande, Calvin Harris and Biffy Clyro, as well as looking back to Wet Wet Wet, Gerry Rafferty and Donovan. It also covers the more popular / modern era of folk music. Many ‘Yes’ supporters are present including Biffy Clyro, Frightened Rabbit, Deacon Blue, Mogwai, Hue and Cry and The Proclaimers.

CD # 1 is largely a mix of chart hits with more predictable inclusions like Biffy Clyro, Emile Sande and Calvin Harris, alongside The Skids and KT Tunstall. The most interesting piece on the CD would be Idlewild‘s ‘In Remote Part/Scottish Fiction’, which was never released as a single but included here thanks to an appearance by Edwyn Morgan.

CD # 2 is the ‘indie’ volume – admittedly kicking off with Texas featuring avowed naysayer Sharleen Spiteri – before things get decidedly obscure with tracks from BMX Bandits and Jazzateers, plus Mogwai, Chvrches and the Cocteaus Twins. Perhaps the most notable absence on the album are Franz Ferdinand, presumably for licensing reasons. (Also not present over the 59 tracks are Runrig, whose ‘classic’ lineup is split between the SNP’s Pete Wishart and Labourite/Unionist Donnie Munro).

CD # 3 is the finale of sorts, with a smattering of ‘proper’ folk plus old-school hits from throughout the ages. From The Proclaimers via Al Stewart and Frankie Miller, the score of anthems climaxes with a double whammy of Dougie MacLean‘s ‘Caledonia’ before all present are upstanding for The Corries doing ‘Flower Of Scotland’.

Made In Scotland is available for pre order now ahead of its release on September 1st.
