BARENAKED LADIES: ORIGINAL HITS, ORIGINAL STARS AVAILABLE

The Multi-Platinum Band’s Hits Are Available On Vinyl For First Time!

Barenaked Ladies will release their first-ever vinyl hits collection tomorrow as the group celebrates more than three decades of chart success. The 12-song compilation includes the multi-platinum band’s biggest singles, as well as their theme to the television series The Big Bang Theory, which is making its vinyl debut. ORIGINAL HITS, ORIGINAL STARS will be released tomorrow, on October 4.

“We’ve had many hits, and I believe they are all truly great. These however…are the Greatest,” says lead singer, guitarist, and song-writer, Ed Robertson. The song selection spans Barenaked Ladies’ career and includes “If I Had $1000000” from the group’s July 1992 major-label debut, Gordon.  The album was certified gold in the U.S and diamond in their native Canada. The following year, Gordon garnered them the Juno Award for Group of the Year – the first of eight Juno Awards Barenaked Ladies have won to date. The band was also inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 2018.

ORIGINAL HITS, ORIGINAL STARS features early favorites like “The Old Apartment” from 1996’s Born On A Pirate Ship and a live version of “Brian Wilson,” which appeared on the concert album Rock Spectacle (1996), the band’s first platinum-selling album in the U.S. Much of ORIGINAL HITS, ORIGINAL STARS draws on the critical and commercial success Barenaked Ladies enjoyed with Stunt (1998) and Maroon (2000). Stunt was certified 4x platinum in the U.S. and included “It’s All Been Done” and the Grammy-nominated international smash, “One Week,” which reached the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart on October 17, 1998. Maroon, another U.S. platinum-selling release, included “Falling For The First Time” and the Grammy-nominated single “Pinch Me.”  This album also features “Easy” from 2006’s Barenaked Ladies Are Me, “You Run Away” from 2010’s All in Good Time and “Odds Are” from 2013’s Grinning Streak.
