Cold Chisel announce first new recording in 13 years

Cold Chisel announce first new recording in 13 years

All For You, Cold Chisel’s first new recording in 13 years, will be available as a free download as the band announces the release of a new public-voted Best Of album.

Following the phenomenal public reaction to the announcement of Cold Chisel’s Light The Nitro Tour and recent catalogue reissue, the band has taken the unusual step of inviting the public to vote for the songs they want on the band's upcoming Best Of album. And everyone who votes for their favourite Cold Chisel songs via the band's website will be able to download Cold Chisel’s new single, All For You, for free. All the votes will then be tallied to create All For You The Best of Cold Chisel .. a new compilation album handpicked by the public.

The album will take its name from the band's first new studio recording in 13 years, All For You. It's classic Cold Chisel; a powerful Don Walker-penned song made all the more special for the fact that it features the last ever recorded performance by the band's drummer Steve Prestwich, who passed away unexpectedly in January.

From Monday, 29 August at 11.00am through till 8.00pm on Friday, 2 September New Zealanders will be able to go into the band's website [] and cast their vote for the 5 songs that they want to see on the album. The album will also include two new songs, one of which will be All For You. All For You The Best Of Cold Chisel will be released by Warner Music on Friday, 14 October, the day after the band starts the Light The Nitro Tour in Newcastle, NSW.

"It stops us arguing about what songs to include on the album," laughed Jimmy Barnes of the album's unique selection process. "Whenever you compile a record like this, there's always someone who says 'why didn't you include this or that' ... Now we've got someone else to blame."

Coinciding with the voting, All For You will be released to all radio around the country on Monday 29 August.

Dates and venues for the Light The Nitro Tour are below.
