Tracklist: A Message to You, Rudy Do the Dog It's Up to You Nite Klub Doesn't Make It Alright Concrete Jungle Too Hot Monkey Man (Dawning of A) New Er. .

The Specials is the debut album by British ska revival band The Specials. Released on 19 October 1979 on Jerry Dammers' 2 Tone label, the album is seen by some as the defining moment in the UK ska scene. Produced by Elvis Costello, the album captures the disaffection and anger felt by the youth of the UK's "concrete jungle"-a phrase borrowed from Bob Marley's 1972 album Catch a Fire but equally apposite used here to describe the grim, violent inner cities of 1970s Britain.

Encore is the eighth studio album by the English ska revival band The Specials. It is their first studio album of original songs since 1998's Guilty 'til Proved Innocent!, and their first new material with vocalist Terry Hall since 1981's "Ghost Town" single

Encore is at its best when it leaves the Specials’ past behind and faces forward. A cover of the Equals’ Black Skin Blue Eyed Boys is a tip of the hat to Eddy Grant’s pioneering multiracial band, and unlike anything the Specials have released before, offering impressively taut funk in the place of Jamaican rhythms. There’s something appealingly odd about the music that supports Hall’s examination of his struggles with mental health on The Life and Times. Perhaps the kindest thing you can say about their attitude to women – as expressed on Little Bitch, Too Much Too Young or Hey Little Rich Girl – was that it tells you a lot about men of their era, including the ostensibly right-on ones.

In troubled times, thank god The Specials are on hand to slap some sense into a babbling world. You wouldn’t expect the ’70s’ premier ska-punk band to return after 20 years out of the studio having transformed themselves into a cutting edge psych grime act – ‘Encore’ essentially mingles mellowed ska and reggae with funk disco, Latin hints and spoken-word pieces – but initially you might fear their socio-political edge has dulled

The Specials’ first album of new material in 37 years, Encore is their first ever UK Number 1 album, clocking up 89% physical sales and, coincidentally, it’s 39 years ago this week since their single Too Much Too Young topped the Official Singles Chart. Check out their full Official Charts history here. Receiving the award, The Specials told OfficialCharts. com, Recording the album has been one of the most amazing trips of our lives. Busted are runners-up with Half Way There, their third album to reach Number 2 – 2002’s self-titled debut and 2003’s A Present For Everyone also just missed the top spot on the Official Albums Chart. Another three brand new albums end their first week in the Top 10: Ripples by Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown (4), London rapper Fredo’s first full-length album Third Avenue (5), and Claire Richards’ debut solo project My Wildest Dreams (9). MORE: Every Official Albums Chart Number 1.

The Specials, one of the most electrifying, influential and important bands of all time, follow the announcement of Encore, their first new album in 37 years, with the release of their new single ‘Vote For Me’ via UMC /Island Records. The song has just debuted on BBC Radio 1 on Steve Lamacq’s programme and you can hear it below. 2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the formation of The Specials and the legendary Two-Tone label in Coventry in 1979, and also marks 10 years since the band reformed to play some of the most vital and joyous live shows in recent memory. The Specials will take to the road in the UK and abroad throughout 2019 in support of Encore, which is released on 1 February 2019.
