As you can see, we weren’t too far off with the Sweetest Best Selection though probably most interesting for some will be the Sweetest Remix as these do appear to be all new remixes.
Depending where you are in the world, 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of release of the single Everything’s Gonna Be Alright. We’re just going to let that sink in for a moment or two (and allow the ‘I feel old’ sensation to pass for some)…..done? Good, then let’s continue, shall we?
Recently spotted is two albums currently scheduled for release date of 19th April 2017 in Japan. At this time all we know for certain is the release date and titles. The track listing is yet to be confirmed and may be subject to change. So we’ll indulge in some speculation into what these could potentially be.
First up we have Sweetest Best Selection 1997 – 2006 (previous working title was Sweetbox The Best – “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” 20th Anniversary (1995 -2006) (Cat. No: AVCD- 93676). This looks to be a 21 track release. It could simply be a repackaging of 1 disc from Complete Best (we’ve seen in done in the past with other artists) or it could be a completely new listing
Second we have Sweetest Remix (previous working title was Sweetbox The Best Remix – “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” 20th Anniversary (1995- 2006) (Cat. No. AVCD-93677). From what we’ve gathered regarding this, it looks to be a 12 track release. We’ve previously had Best of 12″Collection and of course Sweet Reggae Mix. We’re not entirely sure if this is going to be 12 brand new remixes or a mix of previously released mixes….or unheard mixes?
Both releases can be pre-ordered in the current locations:
Sweetest Best Selection 1997 – 2006: HMV Japan | YesAsia
Sweetest Remix: HMV Japan | YesAsia
In the mean time, why not indulge in the track that is 20 years old this year
Well last week we had the teasers for the forthcoming video for the new single EGBA (that’s Everything’s Gonna Be Alright btw!). JAde & Jamie had their own versions of the classic track, so shouldn’t come as a surprise to see another one! The video won’t be out till later, but in the meantime you can purchase the single right now!
The track is available on ALL iTunes music stores (yes Japan, even yours :D…. though the following: Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia & United Arab Emirates, …you don’t seem to have it :()
Check the links below to see where to purchase the track! And look out for the video coming soon!
Amazon: UK | Fr | De | It | Jp | Es | US
It’s early morning…so early that the boss misread the latest tweet from Sweetbox. They simply read “Nu Disco Mix” & “out today” and thought “that’s already been out a week!”
Thankful they went back and read again. This time it’s the Nu Disco Mix for the latest single for Nothing Can Keep Me From You! Check it out in the link below:
The track is available to download now from Amazon sites, iTunes & of course, the official store. Check the links below:
UK | US | Fr | De | It | Es | Jp
Let us know what you think about this latest remix!
So you might have seen from the official Sweetbox account on twitter that the new single, #Z21 charted @ #42 in the Swiss Dance Charts and @ #5 in the UK Dance Charts.
What we’ve since discovered is that these charts appear to be voted on by DJs only, rather than traditional means of radio airplay & sales. And we’ve found a few more positions for dance charts in Europe! Check them out below!
And….it’s just sitting outside the top 50 in Austria!
Great to see that DJ seem to be supporting the new track!
Well, we’d already revealed the artwork for what we believe will be the international release of #Z21, known as #Zeitgeist21, but today we can also reveal the track listing to you too!
1. #Z21 (#Zeitgeist21) (Radio Edit)
2. Nothing Can Keep Me From You (Ain’t No Mountain)
3. Everything’s Gonna Be Alright
4. Every Rose
7. Life Is Good
8. All 4 Love
9. Aase’s Death
10. Carol Of The Bells
11. My Understatement
13. #Z21 (#Zeitgeist21) (Video Edit)
If we’re right, the Radio Edit of #Z21 is the version that was released as the single internationally whilst the Video Edit is likely to be the version that appeared on the Japanese release but we won’t be able to confirm anything until we see track times!
No word on a release date yet but the lovely folk over on the official youtube channel have put samples up for all to hear. You can check them out here
No word on a release date yet but once known (as well as per-order links if available) well post them for you!
Well Japan, you might have had to wait for the #Z21 single, but today you can download the album from iTunes, a week ahead of it’s physical release!
As for the rest of us, we can listen to 1:30 samples courtesy of the Japanese iTunes too! So check them out and let us know what you’re thinking!
