Today, Goo Goo Dolls premiere the new track “Nothing Can Change You (Live)“, a cover version of Tommy Keene’s original song and the latest offering from their forthcoming compilation record Rarities. Arriving on June 25th, 2021 via Warner Records, the album is a retrospective collection of 20 songs spanning Goo Goo Dolls’ career from 1995 to 2007; 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.
Rarities will be released on digital, vinyl, and CD formats, and pre-orders are available now HERE. In celebration of the new album, the band is also offering a signed print with their Rarities 2LP, and limited-edition merch that includes a hat, sweatshirt, puzzle, and tee-shirts. All these items can be found in their official online store here.
With over three decades and counting together as a group, this special release provides a panoramic view of Goo Goo Dolls’ alternate journey through the past. Among numerous other tracks from the vault, Rarities includes live performances such as the band’s cover of the famed INXS hit “Don’t Change” and their rare live performance of “Let Love In“, recorded at the legendary Capitol Studios in Hollywood. The album also features 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“.
Goo Goo Dolls are currently in the studio recording their highly anticipated thirteenth LP.
ABOUT GOO GOO DOLLS:
Formed in Buffalo, NY during 1986 by John Rzeznik and Robby Takac, Goo Goo Dolls quietly broke records, contributed a string of staples to the American songbook, connected to millions of fans, and indelibly impacted popular music for three-plus decades. Beyond selling 12 million records worldwide, the group garnered four GRAMMY® Award nominations and seized a page in the history books by achieving 14 number one and Top 10 hits at Hot AC—“the most of any artist.“ As a result, they hold the all-time radio record for “Most Top 10 Singles.” Among a string of hits, “Iris” clutched #1 on the Hot 100 for 18 straight weeks and would be named “#1 Top 40 Song of the Last 20 Years.“ Thus far, A Boy Named Goo (1995) went double-platinum, Dizzy Up The Girl went quadruple-platinum, and Gutterflower (2002) and Let Love In (2006) both went gold as Something for the Rest of Us (2010) and Magnetic (2013) bowed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200. 2016’s Boxes attracted the praise of People and Huffington Post as Noisey, Consequence of Sound, and more featured them. Their music has been covered by everyone from Taylor Swift to Leona Lewis. Among many accolades, John received the prestigious “Hal David Starlight Award” in 2008.
Following a sold-out 2018 twentieth anniversary tour in celebration of Dizzy Up The Girl, Goo Goo Dolls wrote and recorded their twelfth full-length album, Miracle Pill (Warner Records)—igniting a bold and bright new era in the process. On October 30th 2020 the band released their first-ever Christmas album It’s Christmas All Over.
