Papa Roach will release its latest hits compilation next month.
Dubbed Greatest Hits Vol. 2: The Better Noise Years the new compilation — the band’s second singles collection — is scheduled for release March 19 through Better Noise Records. Pre-orders are open now.
In anticipation of the compilation’s release, the band has debuted a re-mastered take of its 2015 single ‘Broken As Me.’ The updated take on the song features guest vocals by Asking Alexandra front man Danny Worsnop.
Papa Roach front man Jacoby Shaddix talked about bringing Worsnop on board for the updated take during a recent interview.
“He’s been on our list for a while, and having just toured together, we thought of Danny first when listening to some of the deeper cuts on the album,” said Shaddix. “With the pandemic in full swing, Danny was down right away. He’s one of the best vocalists in rock music, so we’re happy he said yes.”
Worsnop said in his own comments, he was excited to take part in the song’s update.
“Making music with my friends is something I always love and enjoy, so when Jacoby called me about doing something together I was in right away,” said Worsnop. “The Papa Roach guys have been close friends for a long time now and I’m glad they were able to see that the only thing holding them back from stardom all these years was not having me sing on a new version of one of their songs. I think this is really going to put them on the map and from the bottom of my heart, they’re welcome!”
Guitarist Jerry Horton talked about the new compilation with his own comments.
“We wanted to commemorate the last 10 years of our journey with a sampling of the music that got us here,” said Horton. “None of it could have been possible without the support of all of our families, our friends, or team and most of all, you–our fans.”
Greatest Hits Vol. 2: The Better Noise Years will feature 21 songs. Among those songs is a total of 12 of the band’s recent Top 10 singles released from 2010-2019 through Better Noise Records.
