Steve Miller has announced a new collection that spans across his six-decade career called 'Welcome to the Vault'.

Hitting shelves this 11th October, the 52-track box set will include 38 previously unreleased recordings performed by the Steve Miller Band.

The collection will include live renditions, demos, rehearsals as well as outtakes; five songs have never been released in any form, a 12-minute work-in-progress jam for 'Fly Like an Eagle', an acoustic version of 'Kow Kow Calculator' and 'Seasons', a big-band performance of 'Take the Money and Run' with Jimmie Vaughan, and a recording of 'Lollie Lou' performed by T-Bone Walker in Miller's childhood home living room in 1951.

An accompanying DVD with 21 live performances is also included in the box set that features two recorded songs at 1967's iconic Monterey Pop Festival. To top it off, the collection will feature a hundred-page hardcover photo book from Miller's archives, a 9,000-word essay by David Fricke, an authentic backstage pass as well as 10 guitar picks emblazoned with the famous Pegasus logo.
