3 Doors Down to Release “Greatest Hits” with Three New Songs
October 5, 2012
Multiplatinum, chart-topping rock stalwarts, 3 DOORS DOWN, will release their first-ever greatest hits package on November 19, 2012 in stores and online via Republic Records.
Titled Greatest Hits, the collection encompasses the group’s much-celebrated smash singles such as “Kryptonite”, “It’s Not My Time”, “When I’m Gone”, and many more. Three new songs, including the single “One Light”, make the record a must-have for both longtime fans and newcomers alike.
From that first explosive burst of “Kryptonite”, which ignited their storied career at the top of last decade, to subsequent multi-platinum albums, and a non-stop touring regimen that finds them still notching shows around the world at a record pace, they also earned a hard-fought pedigree as one of Rock’s most exciting and authentic radio icons. Their impressive and steady ascension up the ladder has seen them score multiple #1 hits across formats, snag several Billboard and other awards, and log scores of sold-out shows over a growing global terrain that is nearing forty countries.
Greatest Hits follows up the band’s fifth effort, 2011’s Time of My Life, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top and yielded their tenth Top 10 single. Once again, they’re already making waves at radio.
“One Light” is illuminating stations across the country, and it’s classic 3 DOORS DOWN. Blending a massive hook and warm melodies, the track sees the quintet at its brightest. In addition, this collection also boasts new songs “There’s a Life” and “Goodbyes”.
Greatest Hits reflects on 3 DOORS DOWN‘s incredible journey thus far, while paving the way for even more success and timeless rock to come.
