3 Doors Down has announced a November 19 release date for its "Greatest Hits" album, which will include three new songs -- "One Light," which the group played at the Republic National Convention in August, "There's A Life" and "Goodbyes."
Guitarist Chris Henderson tells us that the three sound like "modern 3 Doors...a little heavier, a little more modern, but it still sounds like 3 Doors 'cause no one can sing like Brad (Arnold)."
Marti Frederiksen, one of the group's collaborators on 2011's "Time of My Life," worked with 3 Doors Down again on the new songs.
"We had a really good time and liked him," Henderson notes. "On 'Time of My LIfe' we worked with a few songwriters, but they did their homework almost too well; when they brought their ideas to us it sounded like our songs. We were like, 'What the hell do we need you guys for?' So this time we approached it with that in mind and just used (Frederiksen) instead of a bunch of guys."
The "Greatest Hits" set will include nine other songs, including "Kryptonite," "It's Not My Time," "When I'm Gone," "Away From The Sun" and "Here Without You."
3 Doors Down is currently taking time off after the summer's Gang Of Outlaws Tour with ZZ Top and Gretchen Wilson. Henderson says the group has already started writing for its next album.
