FOOTPRINTS is the follow-up to Powderfinger’s first “best of” compilation, the multi-platinum Fingerprints – The Best Of Powderfinger 1994- 2000, which was released in 2004.
FOOTPRINTS picks up the Powderfinger story from the release of the Brisbane band’s fifth studio album, the rock-driven, chart-topping Vulture Street (2003). The hits and fan favourites featured on Footprints are also drawn from the band’s final two albums, Dream Days at the Hotel Existence (2007) and the Finger’s swan song, Golden Rule (2009), both of which similarly debuted at the top of the ARIA album charts upon release.
FOOTPRINTS’ 18-track setlist includes “On My Mind”, “Since You’ve Been Gone”, “Love Your Way”, “Sunsets”, “Lost and Running”, “I Don’t Remember”, “All of the Dreamers” and “Burn Your Name” – classic songs that have helped make up the soundtrack of the lives of millions of Aussies and a core part of the Australian musical fabric of the past decade.
FOOTPRINTS – The Best Of Powderfinger 2001-2011 also features two new, never-before-heard Powderfinger songs, the glorious acoustic-based ballad “Empty Space”, which will also be released as a single, and the country-tinged rocker “Silver Bullet”.
