XXV is the fifteenth album released by British pop group The Shadows. It was released in 1983 on Polydor Records. It includes instrumental cover versions of songs by Toto, Mark Knopfler, Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes, Dusty Springfield, Jet Harris & Tony Meehan, Elaine Paige & Procol Harum. XXV carries the distinction of being one of very few Shadows albums to feature some vocal tracks, The Modern Way and Liverpool Days (both sung by Hank Marvin).
