Brooke Fraser to Release "A Sides" Collection On November 25

Brooke Fraser will release her first ever Greatest Hits collection on November 25

Featuring 13 hits to date and a brand new single Therapy

Therapy was co-written with Grammy-Award winning Producer, Joel Little

First new recording since the birth of Brooke’s daughter, Dylan Wilde

Sony Music is proud to announce the release of Brooke Fraser’s A Sides collection onNovember 25th. The album brings together fourteen singles from Brooke’s fourteen-year career along with a brand new track Therapy recorded with her countryman Joel Little in Los Angeles.

With a career commencing at the age of just 18, Brooke has clocked up a remarkable number of achievements to be celebrated with this collection. Brooke Fraser’s A Sides lets us take a moment to listen to the very best to date from one of our greatest musical talents and most successful artistic exports.

Her 2003 debut What To Do With Daylight made her a household name in New Zealand with hits like Better and the timeless Arithmetic.

The title track to her 2007 follow-up Albertine celebrated her passion for Africa while the album gave us the massive singles Deciphering Me and Shadow Feet, seeing her reputation grow further afield – especially in Australia and the US.

Flags, released in 2010, opened the international floodgates for Brooke with the worldwide smash Something In The Water, a Gold selling single in six countries.

Her latest album Brutal Romantic saw Brooke recording in the UK and develop her sound more with the singles Kings & Queens and Magical Machine.

Brooke’s song writing talent has been acknowledged with the APRA Silver Scroll forAlbertine, over 16 platinum sales discs in New Zealand alone, over 265,000 album sales in New Zealand alone and 700,000 worldwide – impressive numbers by any standard backed up by a consistency of quality through her remarkable catalogue.

It’s already been an incredible career, making her one of New Zealand’s most-loved artists of the past decade. She has shared the stage with artists like David Bowie, opening on his New Zealand tour in 2004, and toured throughout the world.

New song Therapy, her first recording since she took a break for the birth of her daughter Dylan Wilde, shows Brooke’s talent for thoughtful hooks and charming pop songs – the things we all fell in love with right at the start – are undiminished. That’s a promise too for many more to come but, for now, enjoy her A Sides to date.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
