Brought together in one place for the fist time, the singles exhibit the breadth of Can’s astonishing career, spanning well-travelled tracks like ‘Halleluwah’, ‘Future Days’ and ‘Vitamin C’ and more obscure releases like ‘Turtles Have Short Legs’, which was released on 7″ in 1971 around the time of Tago Mago but never made it to an album.

Mute has also announced that Faber & Faber will publish All Gates Open in spring 2018, a new book devoted to Can in two volumes. One will be the first complete, authorised biography of the band written by Rob Young and the second is a collage of Can member Irmin Schmidt’s thoughts, visuals and interviews entitled Can Kiosk.
