Collective Soul’s ‘7even Year Itch: Greatest Hits, 1994-2001’ Heads To Vinyl For The First Time

Craft Recordings has announced the vinyl debut of 7even Year Itch: Greatest Hits, 1994-2001, the first collection of hits from Southern alt-rockers, Collective Soul. Originally released in 2001, the collection spans their 1993 breakthrough, “Shine,” through ’90s tracks like “The World I Know,” “December” and “Heavy.”

7even Year Itch also includes the group’s 2000 collaboration with Elton John, “Perfect Day,” as well as “Next Homecoming” and “Energy,” both of which appear exclusively in this collection.

Set for release on December 1, 2023, the LP will also be available in several exclusive variants, including red and yellow swirl (via Target), clear with black splatter (via Walmart) and black and gray marble (via Craft Recordings).

Collective Soul was formed in 1992 in Stockbridge, Georgia, by singer and songwriter Ed Roland, rhythm guitarist Dean Roland, bassist Will Turpin, guitarist Ross Childress, and drummer Shane Evans. The band offered their own twist on Grunge, blending influences of Southern Hard Rock and gritty Soul in their songs.

Celebrating nearly 30 years together, Collective Soul continues to maintain an active presence on the road as well as in the studio. With a line-up that includes founding members Ed Roland, Will Turpin and Dean Roland, plus drummer Johnny Rabb and lead guitarist Jesse Triplett, the band has spent much of the year supporting their 11th studio album, Vibrating. Tour dates will continue throughout the winter, with appearances across the US and New Zealand.
