Barenaked Ladies announces ‘Stunt: 20th Anniversary Edition’

Barenaked Ladies are celebrating three decades of music this year with a summer tour and special edition of their most successful album, Stunt. The band, which was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame this year, was also honored on during a ceremony at the Juno Awards.

Stunt: 20th Anniversary Edition features several bonus tracks along with a DVD that includes the 1999 documentary about the band’s Stunt tour directed by long-time fan Jason Priestly, titled Barenaked In America. This documentary features nearly 90 minutes of live performances and behind-the-scenes footage. Until now, the film has been unavailable on DVD in North America.

Stunt: 20th Anniversary Edition CD/DVD set and double LP set will be available on September 28th. The music will also be available digitally and via streaming services on July 6th.

Barenaked Ladies originally released their fourth and most successful studio album, Stunt, in July 1998. Stunt peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard. The album reached platinum status four times in both the US and Canada, and was certified gold in the UK. This year, band will celebrate their 30th Anniversary on October 1st.

The album’s first single, “One Week,” was a breakthrough for the Canadian band in America, hitting No. 1 on the singles chart. The single sold more than five million copies and earned them a Grammy nomination. Other standout tracks from the hit album include: “It’s All Been Done,” “Call And Answer,” and “Light Up My Room.” The band recorded “Alcohol” completely naked, continuing a tradition it started with its first album, Gordon. Stunt: 20th Anniversary Edition includes three bonus songs: the album outtakes “She’s On Time” and “Long Way Back Home,” plus “Get In Line,” which originally appeared on the King Of The Hill Soundtrack. The vinyl version of this collection includes all the bonus tracks except “Get In Line.”

In celebration, the band will release a rare version of “Long Way Back Home” and will hit the road with Better Than Ezra and KT Tunstall for the Last Summer on Earth 2018 Tour starting in Prior Lake, MN.
