Skunk Anansie have announced that they will release a new live album, ’25live@25′. It’s being released to mark their 25th anniversary and it’s got 25 tracks on it. Hence the title.

“As a black female singer, it was hard to get accepted in many ways”, says vocalist Skin, reflecting on the band’s origins in 1994. “And then I was onstage, doing exactly what I envisioned in my dreams. And I felt for the first time that I was accepted.”

Guitarist Ace adds: “London in the 1990s was a mish-mash of people. But bands weren’t – it was always four blokes with identical haircuts. We were a band of people who were real. That’s why we were radical”.

The album is set for release on 25 Jan. Listen to the version of ‘Weak’ from it here:
