Following recent reissues of the Alan Parsons Project's I, Robot and Eye In The Sky albums, the band will release a compilation, The Essential Alan Parsons Project, on May 15th. The two-disc set features 34 songs from throughout the group's recording career, ranging from the early fan favorite "The Raven" through hits such as "I Wouldn't Want To Be Like You," "Games People Play," "Eye In The Sky," and "Sirius," which is used as the theme song at Chicago Bulls home games.

Parsons and longtime colleague Eric Woolfson co-produced the set.

The Alan Parsons Project will be touring this summer and fall. The group has an April 28th show in Las Vegas, then hits the road in earnest on June 16th in Chattanooga, Tennessee. A full itinerary should be announced soon.
