Goo Goo Dolls premiered a brand-new Christmas song “Who’s Gonna Hear Their Wish?” over the weekend. The track will appear on a deluxe version of their Christmas album, It’s Christmas All Over (Again), which is set for release on November 17 via Warner Records. Listen to the track HERE and watch the accompanying lyric video below.
Last week Goo Goo Dolls released Live At The Academy, which was recorded during their CMJ Music Marathon performance in New York City on November 21, 1995. The 3LP or 2CD set of Live At The Academy is available HERE as well as an album T-Shirt HERE.
In 1995, the rapidly ascending three-piece traveled to New York City for the CMJ Music Marathon. Prior to playing their biggest show in New York at the time, the group delivered a stripped-down soundcheck performance for Tom Calderone’s radio station “Dare to be Different” on 92.7 FM, which was mixed and recorded by legendary producer Jerry Finn (Blink-182, The Offspring). Not only was it the first time the trio had ever recorded a live show, but it was their debut acoustic performance in front of a live audience. Both the soundcheck performance and the group’s show at The Academy captured a special moment in their blossoming career.
Last month, Goo Goo Dolls also released a special edition vinyl of their iconic record Dizzy Up The Girl. The limited-edition reissue is pressed on metallic silver vinyl, celebrating the album’s 25th anniversary, available HERE.
Dizzy Up The Girl catapulted the band into mainstream success, selling over 6 million copies worldwide. The album has gone 5x Certified Platinum in the U.S. and features 5 top 10 singles, including hit songs such as “Iris” (4 GRAMMY nominations, 8x Certified Platinum, over 1 billion Spotify streams), “Slide” (3x Certified Platinum, 240 million Spotify streams) and “Black Balloon” (Certified Platinum, 65 million Spotify streams).
