To celebrate it’s 20th anniversary, Girls Aloud and Polydor/Fascination Records will be releasing a special deluxe edition of the band’s debut smash hit album ‘Sound Of The Underground’, the first in a series of exciting reissues of the band’s studio albums.
The classic album will be released as 3CD deluxe edition featuring two bonus discs of B-sides, rarities and remixes, alongside a 24-page booklet with brand-new sleeve notes and unseen photos.
The album will also be available on vinyl for the very first time on both green coloured vinyl and a limited edition picture disc. The 3CD track list will also be replicated on streaming and digital across all platforms.
Fans can today hear the first release from the album, ‘Sound Of The Underground (Alternative Vocal Mix), which is available now on all streaming services. This alternative mix of the song from the archives has never been released digitally before, and see the band members singing different lines of the iconic song to the original. Last year a limited edition 7″ vinyl release of the song was released, with this alternative version as the B-side to raise funds for The Sarah Harding Breast Cancer Appeal.
After beating their Popstars: The Rivals competitors to the Christmas Number 1 in December 2002, Girls Aloud’s ‘Sound Of The Underground’ single went on to spend four weeks at the top of the chart and heralded in a run of 21 magnificent chart smashes that defined a decade in pop.
