To celebrate 20 years since the release of Girls Aloud’s debut album, Sound Of The Underground has been given a full deluxe makeover with a 20th anniversary edition reissue! After beating their Popstars: The Rivals competitors to the Christmas Number 1 in December 2002, single Sound Of The Underground went on to spend four weeks at the top of the charts. When the album of the same title landed in Spring 2003, it fuelled the Girls Aloud phenomenon, peaking at No.2 in the UK chart and being certified platinum within 5 months of release.
This 20th anniversary edition 3CD format brings together rarities, remixes and B-sides. These include apreviously unreleased alternative vocal version of ‘Sound of The Underground’ plus long-lost tracks including ‘Lights Music Camera Action’, a pair of tracks from ITV’s Greasemania, a rare and uncensored version of ‘No Good Advice’ plus the band’s own take on ‘Buy Girls, Bye Boys’ rivals One True Voice’s ‘Sacred Trust’. It also features brand-new sleeve notes based on interviews with Cheryl, Kimberley, Nadine and Nicola.
