    On September 28th, Joe Strummer’s solo output will be memorialized in an expansive box set titled, Joe Strummer 001. Already, we’ve heard “London is Burning”, an alternate take of “Burnin’ Street” off his final Mescaleros album Streetcore, and now we have a cinematic gem in “Rose of Erin”.

    The song dates back to 1993, when it first appeared in Sara Driver’s film, When Pigs Fly, starring Marianne Faithful. There was no soundtrack accompanying the film’s release, leaving this majestic ballad strictly on celluloid until now. Stream the full track below.

    The box set will be available in a number of formats, including a limited edition deluxe box set that will feature vinyl pressings, a 7-inch vinyl single, a cassette, an art print, collectibles, and an accompanying book featuring rare, unpublished photographs, memorabilia, reviews, and technical notes.

    Pre-orders are available for all formats here.
