Jewel releasing 25th anniversary edition of sophomore album, 'Spirit'

Jewel's second album, Spirit, the follow-up to her multi-Platinum debut, Pieces of You, is getting a 25th anniversary edition.

Coming November 17, the Spirit deluxe album will be available digitally, as a two-CD set and as a two-LP set, marking the first time it's been on vinyl since its 1998 release. In addition to the album's original set of songs — including the hits "Hands" and "Down So Long" — the package includes 23 bonus tracks. Among them are eight unreleased demos, alternate takes and outtakes, remixes and live performances from that era.

Included in those live performances are in-concert renditions of hits like "Who Will Save Your Soul," "Foolish Games" and "You Were Meant For Me," as well as a performance from the ill-fated Woodstock '99 festival.

Spirit, released in 1998, debuted at number three on the album chart and went on to sell 4 million copies; "Hands" hit the top 10.

In a statement, Jewel says, "I still cherish this album and sing many of these songs during my shows, so I'm glad my fans can pick up new copies and hear some unreleased tracks, outtakes, and live recordings."

"I also get to share this with my son now - it's incredibly special to tell him stories about what was happening in my life and the world during this time," she adds. "Whether you heard Spirit back then or are just discovering it now, I appreciate you listening."
