To coincide with the release of digitally remastered and expanded versions of all eight of their studio albums, the legendary 80s synthpop duo present this updated greatest hits collection. Daring and provocative, Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart sold millions of records with their sophisticated, adult-oriented pop. This CD contains all their finest tunes as well as the new single 'I've Got A Life' and is also available as a DVD.
In August 2005, post that critically acclaimed and emotive Live 8 appearance, Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart got back in the studio for the first time in 5 years to record new material and the single 'I've Got A Life'. This is the first time the iconic duo has worked together since the 1999/2000 album 'Peace' and the tour of the same name, which they dedicated to Greenpeace and Amnesty, giving them the profits.
'I've Got A Life' is just one of the new tracks to be included on this 'Ultimate Collection' album, which showcases just how Eurythmics played a large part in shaping the landscape of 80's and 90's music. The influence spreads wider than being innovators of the synth pop genre they are often credited for. Their songs have been pillaged by the biggest names in music; P.Diddy, Marilyn Manson, Utah Saints, Redman (Wu Tang), Faith Evans and Pink, amongst others.
This album is a tribute to why they are revered as seminal. Included are strong and intelligent pop songs; 'There Must Be An Angel' and 'Here Comes The Rain Again', hallmarks of the duo. While 'Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves' showcases Annie Lennox's powerful and expressive voice effortlessly combining with Aretha Franklin. On 'Who's that Girl?' and 'Sweet Dreams' Dave Stewart's innovative production techniques are as fresh today as they were on release. This album is a must have in any music collection, offering some of the most significant records of one of the most important acts the UK has ever produced.
