Made in Scotland: Album celebrates nation's music ahead of independence referendum

Three-disc set features 59 tracks from artists ranging from contemporary artists like Calvin Harris, to Sixties’ folk star Donovan and cult bands including The Cocteau Twins

Some of Scotland’s most successful artists will feature on a unique “Best of” album released to coincide with the independence referendum.

Made in Scotland features 59 tracks from artists ranging from Calvin Harris, Emeli Sandé and Paulo Nutini to Sixties’ folk star Donovan and cult bands including The Cocteau Twins and The Jesus & Mary Chain.

Compiled by Sony Music and released next Monday, MiS has been put together to mark “a year that Scotland has dominated the news and wowed the world with the Commonwealth Games”.

However, the three-disc album, described as a “celebration of some of the best contemporary and heritage Scottish artists across all genres”, is likely to boost the Yes campaign ahead of the national independence vote.

Songs that could be adapted as Yes victory anthems include Fairground Attraction’s “Perfect”, “Feels Like Heaven” by Fiction Factory and “I Could Be Happy” by Altered Images.
