Moonfleet & Other Stories is the eighteenth original album by singer and songwriter Chris de Burgh, released in 2010. This album includes two parts, one including the story of Moonfleet (18 tracks), based on J. Meade Falkner's homonymous novel and the other one including 6 tracks, called Other Stories. The latter half of the title echoes that of De Burgh's 1975 album Spanish Train and Other Stories. For the launch of the album de Burgh signed an exclusive deal with supermarket giant Asda[1] for the physical release in the UK, and worked with digital companies AWAL and Topspin Media to distribute it digitally around the globe.[2]
