Roy’s Boys, a Nashville-based company founded by Orbison’s three sons, teamed up with Legacy Recordings at Sony Music Entertainment to distribute the material after sifting through a massive collection of songs written from the ’50s to the late ’80s, including Orbison’s work with Traveling Wilburys.

In a statement from Alex Orbison according to Rolling Stone, “It is a great honor for me and my brothers, Wesley and Roy Jr., to finally and definitively distill our father’s entire career onto a single disc as best one can possibly do and, certainly, as never done before. It is the result of years of research, archiving and listening, and it is with supreme and heartfelt pleasure that we will be able to share it with the world.”

Roy Orbison’s The Ultimate Collection will be available as a CD and as a double vinyl set. The album can be pre-ordered through Amazon here.
