Martina’s Old Label to Release 20-Song Hits Album
“Independence Day” and “Anyway” among the tracks on the album, to be released Jan. 17.
It's a common move on Music Row—when an artist goes to a new record label, the old label will repackage the songs it owns and put out a greatest-hits or anthology album to try to make more money.
Martina's old label, RCA Records Nashville, is putting out Hits and More on Jan. 17, a collection of 17 of her old hits. Those include "Independence Day," "A Broken Wing," "Wild Angels" and "Valentine."
The collection also will have two new tracks that Martina presumably cut before landing at her new label group, Republic Nashville, part of the Big Machine Label Group, which is home to Taylor Swift, and another track that had been previously released on an EP sold exclusively at Target.
Other songs on the hits album include "Concrete Angel," "Wrong Baby Wrong" and "Anyway."
