The German pagan-folk band are about to celebrate its 15th anniversary by releasing their first greatest hits record "XV" and going on a best-of tour.

The album will be released on 16th February.
It will contain 2 brand new songs titled "An die Geliebte" and "Feuer".

Also, the album will be available in two different editions:

Standard edition: 16 tracks, 70 mintues running time, 24 pages-booklet; including two brand new songs & 3 revamped versions of older tracks.
Deluxe edition: 26 tracks, 120 minutes running time, 28 pages-booklet; including two brand new songs & 7 revamped/new versions of older tracks.

-----------

Can't wait! - Don't know why two of my favourite bands have to release Best ofs in Q1 while going on tour with a "new" vocalist. I'd have prefered to get new albums any time.

Just a few days ago i was wondering if Faun would release something new soon, and now they are coming with a best of as well? :lol:

Anyways, at least they put two new songs on this, not like NW who are going with their 1000th best of without new tracks. So i'm really excited for these new tracks!

I was wondering about Faun's plans the other day as well and that's why I googled them and found out about this release.
It's quite strange to see two of my favourite bands releasing Best of records but oh well... at least we are getting some new stuff ;)

So this is out now and as someone who is still pretty new to them, i quite enjoy it.

The first half is MUCH better. The second half is actually quite boring. The english version of "Feuer" doesn't work at all IMO.
