10cc are one of the UK's most unique and beloved bands of all time, and they're still spoiling fans with plenty to look forward to in 2022.
Original member Graham Gouldman will be touring with the band throughout 2022 and 2023, and they also have a brand new Greatest Hits compilation titled The Things We Do For Love: The Ultimate Hits and Beyond.
The album will feature all of 10cc's biggest hits including 'I'm Not in Love', 'Rubber Bullets', 'Dreadlock Holiday' and 'I'm Mandy Fly Me', as well as tracks by the band's various spinoff projects including Godley and Creme.
Released on May 20, the album also features songs written by Graham Gouldman, such as 'For Your Love' and 'Bus Stop'.
Graham caught up with Gold's James Bassam about the album and upcoming gigs, in the year which celebrates 50 years of 10cc.

"We’ve got a lot of work during this year anyway," Graham said. "We’ve got various festivals. We’re going to Ireland. We’re going to New Zealand and Australia at the end of the year. But just prior to that – September and October – we’ve got a bit provincial city tour where we’ll be going all over the shop."
Talking about the album, Graham added: "It’s a different sort of compilation album, this one. It includes a lot of 10cc original recordings. It includes some stuff I did with Kevin Godley. We had a project called GG/06. There’s some tracks from that. There’s some tracks from the live 10cc recordings.
"These albums come out, and we’re always trying to find a way of refreshing them. We can’t put brand new stuff on, because we do that with solo albums. But I think this one works really well."
