It's time for new releases, and this is not a test. I repeat, This is Not a Test! Missy Elliott drops her new album this week, featuring the single "Pass That Dutch" plus guest appearances by Jay-Z, Monica and Fabolous.
No Doubt have two albums out this week: The Singles: 1992-2003, which features all of the band's hits from "Just a Girl" to "It's My Life" and everything in between, and Boom Box, a box set that includes the former release in its entirety plus videos, previously unreleased tracks, B-sides and a 1997 concert. In other greatest-hits news, Counting Crows release Films About Ghosts, with their popular singles "Mr. Jones" and "Round Here" plus a previously unreleased cover of the Grateful Dead's "Friend of the Devil."
Madonna's songs have been Remixed & Revisited on an EP featuring remixes of songs from American Life as well as "Into the Hollywood Groove" (a.k.a. the Gap ad), the previously unreleased "Your Honesty" and the live medley of "Like a Virgin" and "Hollywood" from the VMAs with Britney Spears, Missy Elliott and Christina Aguilera.
Nelly also rremixes his work on Da Derrty Versions — The Reinvention. Meanwhile, another Nelly — Furtado — releases Folklore alongside Lil Jon and the East Side Boyz's Part II, Enrique Iglesias' Seven, Korn's Take a Look in the Mirror and Puddle of Mudd's follow-up to 2001's Come Clean, Life on Display.
Rage Against the Machine's Live at the Grand Olympic Auditorium was recorded in September 2000 and features covers of Eric B. and Rakim's "Microphone Fiend," Devo's "Beautiful World," and the MC5's "Kick Out the Jams."
Finally, Johnny Cash's box set has been Unearthed by Rick Rubin, the man responsible for the American Recordings series that spawned his last hit, "Hurt." All of the five discs contain previously unreleased songs, and the set features the Man in Black's commentary on the tracks and a book of photographs.
