Jewel to Release "Greatest Hits" CD on February 5
Wed, 12 Dec 2012 11:37:43
Constantly evolving singer and new mom Jewel has enjoyed career longevity that is quite rare among her generation of artists. Since achieving international stardom 18 year ago, the Alaskan beauty has emerged as a charismatic live performer and a respected songwriter with 10 studio albums to her credit. She's earned four Grammy® nominations along the way, the most recent for her 2010 country ballad, "Satisfied." She even had a pit stop as a dance pop act along the way! We love how she reinvents herself constantly.
Rhino brings together Jewel's best for her first ever career-spanning collection that includes new recordings of two classic hits with guest vocalists: "Foolish Games" with Kelly Clarkson and "You Were Meant For Me" with the Pistol Annies. The collection also includes one brand new single which will be revealed in the coming weeks. Jewel's Greatest Hits will be available February 5 on CD ($18.98) and digitally ($9.99).
Jewel has sold more than 27 million albums during her career. So she is pretty freakin' successful. We also love that she has chosen to add new tracks to this career-spanning set. It truly encompasses all that is Jewel.
Remember, she switched directions from a solid singer-songwriter in 2003 with 0304, an album that fused elements of electronic and folk to create a delightfully quirky mix epitomized by the contrast of dance beats and accordion on the single "Intuition," which became a huge hit single on both the dance and pop charts. It was a risky move, but it paid off.

"Who Will Save Your Soul"
"You Were Meant for Me"
