Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum selling band Goo Goo Dolls has officially released their brand-new compilation album Rarities. A retrospective collection of 20 songs spanning Goo Goo Dolls’ career from 1995 to 2007, the record is available in digital, vinyl, and CD formats via Warner Records. Listen HERE.
In celebration of the album’s release, the band also shared “Broadway (Live)”, a rare live recording of the band’s iconic hit originally captured for AOL’s Sessions@AOL series. Listen HERE.
Rarities explores a prolific period during which the band released several chart-topping hits, ascended to mainstream stardom, and cemented their footing as one of the most influential rock bands in recent memory. The double LP features numerous tracks never before released on digital streaming platforms or any physical format, including b-sides, live songs, acoustic renditions, radio performances, international releases, and additional non-album tracks.
Rarities includes covers of the famed INXS hit “Don’t Change”, ‘Hit Or Miss’ by The Damned, ‘Nothing Can Change You’’ by Tommy Keene, acoustic versions of seminal tracks such as “Iris,” “Slide,” and “Name”, international releases including a remix of “Long Way Down” by Grammy® award-winning mixer/producer/engineer Tom Lord-Alge, and even a one-minute performance of the Major League Baseball-staple “Take Me Out To The Ball Game”, plus many other rare tracks from the vault.
With their highly anticipated thirteenth LP on the horizon, the band also recently announced North American tour dates for summer 2022, for dates and tickets visit the band’s website here.
