David Garrett has released a new acoustic version of Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal. The track is the first single from Garrett’s new anthology Unlimited (Greatest Hits), which is available via Polydor/Island on 26 October. You can hear the new track below.

As uDiscover Music previously reported, Unlimited (Greatest Hits) finds the violinist extraordinaire revisiting his biggest hits since 2007 – including ‘Viva La Vida’, ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit,’ ‘Cry Me A River,’ ‘Dangerous,’ and ‘He’s A Pirate’ from Pirates Of The Caribbean. In addition, there is a wealth of new and exclusive material. Garrett not only recorded six brand-new songs to commemorate his first hugely successful decade in the spotlight, but also added four new acoustic renditions – including fan favourites such as Smooth Criminal, ‘Walk This Way,’ ‘Air,’ and ‘Asturias’, plus, a newly arranged ‘Toccata’.

To date, Garrett has released no less than 10 gold and/or (multi-)platinum award winning albums between 2007 and 2017, selling millions of records around the globe, and most importantly, he has carved out a reputation as a fearless, genre-defying “crossover artist”.

“For me, it was really important to add something to the classic Greatest Hits format. I wanted to go further than that, so instead of presenting only the hits, the idea was to add something brand-new, to record some new and unreleased songs,” says Garrett of Greatest Hits (Unlimited).

“This album means so much to me, because it marks a very special moment in time: my 10th anniversary. Of course I wanted to celebrate this anniversary with my fans, because ultimately I wanted to say thank you with this album. It’s a big heartfelt thank-you to the fans – for being loyal, for always believing in me, as a human being and as a musician. My way of saying thank-you is presenting these new songs – half a dozen classics that hold a very special place in my heart.”

David Garrett will also be embarking on a European tour in support of Unlimited in May 2019. For more information on the dates, visit the artist’s website.
