Celebrate: The Greatest Hits is a compilation album by the Scottish rock band Simple Minds, released on March 25, 2013. There were three different formats released: a two disc version, a three disc version, and a single disc version for the North American market. The album spans all of their studio albums from 1979's "Life in a Day" to 2009's "Graffiti Soul", which at the time was the latest album Simple Minds released, plus the live version "Promised You a Miracle" from 1987's "Live in the City of Light", and new tracks recorded for this compilation: "Stagefright", "Blood Diamonds", and "Broken Glass Park". The 1-disc and 2-disc version come in jewel cases. The 3-disc version comes in a clam shell box which comes with sleeves for each disc(each of which represent periods in the band's history), a double-sided poster which includes the album's cover art on one side and the cover art for all of the singles included on this compilation on the other side.
