Dynamic DJ duo Thievery Corporation have released their first best of album, It Takes a Thief, and it’s now available on colored vinyl in a special 4 x 12″ set…
It Takes a Thief is a collection of tracks specially selected by Rob Garza and Eric Hilton for longtime fans and for music lovers who have heard of Thievery Corporation but may have never listened to the band.
It Take a Thief features Lebanese Blonde, the beautiful song used on the Grammy award-winning Garden State Soundtrack, as well as Sound the Alarm, the funk infused track that has become a staple opening track for the band’s live shows. “We’ve always been a little hesitant of putting together a retrospective,” Rob Garza said. “But looking back and realizing it’s been almost 15 years since we started, we figured maybe now is the time. These tracks are some of our favorite moments.”
Thievery Corporation has released 5 studio albums to date and has sold over 1.5 million records since 1998. Thievery’s tracks have been licensed for film, TV and advertisements including True Blood, Entourage, Six Feet Under, CSI, Skyy Vodka, Jaguar, Lexus, EA Sports and many others. They have collaborated with a diverse number of artists from The Flaming Lips to Femi Kuti, and remixed a spectrum of artists from the Doors to David Byrne.
