Missy Higgins - The Special Ones (CD ALBUM)

Missy Higginshas today announcedThe Special Ones –Best Of, a collection that features 4 previously unreleased tracks plus 16 handpicked songs including material from her multi-platinum albums 'The Sound Of White', 'On A Clear Night', 'The Ol' Razzle Dazzle', 'Oz', and this year's 'Solastalgia'.

the album threads together a slew of Missy classics including her #1 singles 'Scar' and 'Steer', radio favourites'Futon Couch', 'Ten Days', and 'Unashamed Desire' plus epic ballads like 'Everyone's Waiting', 'The Special Two' and her Gold U.S. single 'Where I Stood'. It's a primer to one of Australian music's strongest modern catalogues; a body of work that has generated over a million album sales in this country alone while yielding 23 ARIA Award nominations and9 wins.

Nestled alongside these hits are a few great songs that might have slipped past all but hardcore fans such as an aching refugee benefit single, 'Oh Canada' and the searing standalone 'Torchlight' that Missy wrote for the end credits of the acclaimed Aussie film,Don't Tell. Two covers from her unique book/album project 'Oz' are then joined by another reworking -a previously unreleased live version of the classic 'Throw Your Arms Around Me' captured in front of over80,000 people on the Ed Sheeran stadium tour last February.

'Best Of' albums like this might seem a bit redundant in the streaming era where fans can create their own compilations at will.However, with each passing year new people are discovering a Missy Higgins song for the very first time while others are reconnecting with her work after a long break. Meanwhile a slew of young female singer/songwriters are citing her as a formative influence, introducing her music to another generation of younger fans. Thisalbum is a tailor-made entry point for all those people who want to hear more -whatever the reasons. For hardcore fans it will hopefully be a reminder of why they formed such a deep connection with Missy in the first place with a few new surprises in there for them as well.
