Contemporary Christian pioneer Amy Grant is releasing the first “best of” collection to span her pop career with Greatest Hits 1986-2004, available October 12th on the A&M/UTV/Ume labels.
Executive produced by Grant, the album picks up where 1987’s restropective, The Collection, left off, featuring 17 digitally remastered favorites including “The Next Time I Fall,” her number one 1986 duet with Peter Cetera, and last year’s top 40 hit “Simple Things,” which was the title track to Amy’s first album of original material in six years.
Initial shipments of Greatest Hits 1986-2004 will be presented in a limited edition that also includes a bonus CD of four remixes--“Every Heartbeat (7” Body & Soul Mix),” “That’s What Love Is For (7” Single Mix),” “I Will Remember You (Rhythm Mix)” and “House Of Love (Classic Philly Soul Mix).”
Also on the CD will be two new recordings, “Come Be With Me,” featuring Keb’ Mo’ and co-written by Beth Nielsen Chapman (Faith Hill’s “This Kiss”), and “The Water,” co-written by Grant and with husband Vince Gill on electric guitar.
In addition, a full-length Greatest Videos 1986-2004 DVD will be simultaneously issued, featuring 17 videos and 7 remix audio tracks sync’d to the corresponding video. The DVD also features an exclusive commentary track recorded by Amy Grant.
