Howie Day's Stop All The World Now (Special Edition) gets a digital makeover
Howie Day, the singer-songwriter best known for his hit songs \"Collide\" and \"She Says\", has released a digital remaster of his 2003 album Stop All The World Now (Special Edition). The album, which features acoustic versions of some of his tracks, as well as live recordings and bonus songs, has been enhanced with improved sound quality and new artwork.
Day said he wanted to give his fans a fresh experience of the album, which marked a turning point in his career. \"Stop All The World Now was a very special album for me. It was the first time I worked with a full band and a producer, and it opened up a lot of new possibilities for my music. I'm very proud of how it turned out, and I hope this digital edition will bring back some memories for those who loved it, and introduce it to new listeners who may have missed it.\"
The digital edition of Stop All The World Now (Special Edition) is available on all major streaming platforms and online stores. Day also announced that he is working on new material and plans to tour in 2024.
Stop All The World Now (Special Edition) was originally released in 2003 as a follow-up to Day's debut album Australia. The album received positive reviews from critics and fans, who praised Day's emotional lyrics and catchy melodies. The album also spawned two successful singles, \"Collide\" and \"She Says\", which reached the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The album was certified gold by the RIAA in 2005.
Day said he was inspired by artists like Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, and U2 when he made the album. He also experimented with different instruments and sounds, such as loops, keyboards, and strings. He said he wanted to create a diverse and dynamic album that reflected his growth as an artist. \"I think this album shows different sides of me. There are songs that are very intimate and personal, and there are songs that are more upbeat and energetic. I wanted to make an album that had something for everyone.\"
The special edition of the album, which was released in 2004, added six bonus tracks to the original tracklist. These included acoustic versions of \"Collide\" and \"She Says\", live recordings of \"Brace Yourself\" and \"Perfect Time of Day\", and two previously unreleased songs, \"This Time Around\" and \"Standing in the Sun\". Day said he wanted to give his fans a glimpse of his creative process and his live performance. \"I think the bonus tracks show how the songs evolved from the studio to the stage. I also wanted to share some songs that didn't make it to the final cut, but that I still love and wanted people to hear.\"
Since the release of Stop All The World Now (Special Edition), Day has continued to make music and tour around the world. He has released three more albums, Sound The Alarm (2009), Lanterns (2015), and The Madrigals EP (2017). He has also collaborated with other artists, such as Tori Amos, Better Than Ezra, and The Fray. He said he is always looking for new ways to express himself and connect with his fans. \"I love making music and sharing it with people. It's what I've always wanted to do. I'm very grateful for the support and feedback I've received over the years. It motivates me to keep going and keep growing.\"
Day also revealed that he is working on a new album, which he hopes to release in 2024. He said he has been writing and recording new songs during the pandemic, and that he is excited to share them with the world. He said the new album will be a reflection of his current state of mind and his experiences during these challenging times. \"I think this album will be different from anything I've done before. It will be more honest, more raw, more real. I think it will resonate with a lot of people who are going through similar things. I can't wait for people to hear it.\"
Day also announced that he plans to tour in 2024, once the pandemic situation improves and it is safe to do so. He said he misses performing live and interacting with his fans face to face. He said he hopes to visit as many places as possible and deliver an unforgettable show. \"I'm really looking forward to touring again. It's one of my favorite parts of being a musician. There's nothing like being on stage and feeling the energy of the crowd. I want to give my fans the best show possible. I want them to have fun, to feel something, to remember it.\"
