Originally released in 2003, Switchfoot's 'The Beautiful Letdown' catapulted the San Diego-based rock group to international fame, and cemented their status as underdogs in the music industry whose grassroots approach to music making was a breath of fresh air.
This impressive 25-track collection is a celebration of that album's lasting influence on generations of musicians from across all genres and backgrounds. From the subtle country twang of Ingrid Andress' new rendition of "On Fire" and Jon Bellion's orchestral reimagining of the iconic single "Meant To Live", to up-and-comer Dayglow's propulsive new recording of "Adding To The Noise", 'The Beautiful Letdown (Our Version) [Deluxe Edition]' is a worthy and heartfelt tribute to an album that has meant so much to so many over the past 20 years.
Speaking about the release, Switchfoot's Jon Foreman noted: "It feels amazing to finally have 'The Beautiful Letdown (Our Version) [Deluxe Edition]' out in the world! This project is really a dream come true - it's such an honor to have so many of our friends and heroes dive in and recreate these songs. When we started this whole thing we really had no idea where it would go or what it would look like, we just knew we had to do it. Music is about community, these songs aren't just ours alone and this project is the perfect example of that."
