NOW That’s What I Call Music! is excited to celebrate our 40th anniversary, and we are proud to present four very special collector’s editions that together present 175 essential hits from the past 40 years on vinyl... the fourth of these is NOW That's What I Call 40 Years: Volume 4 - 2013-2023. Looking back at 10 years of huge Pop hits, this 3LP is pressed on glorious green vinyl in a stunning tri-fold sleeve that includes a track-by-track guide and original singles and NOW artwork.
48 tracks that span 10 years of NOW releases, including tracks from all of the numbered NOW That’s What I Call Music! albums from NOW 86 to NOW 115.
LP1 opens in 2013 with the massive #1s ‘Wake Me Up’ from Avicii, and the debut (‘Royals’) from Lorde, before more #1s from Miley Cyrus, Pitbull feat. Ke$ha, and ‘Happy’ - a global best-seller by Pharrell Williams. The biggest solo hits to-date for Sia, and Paloma Faith, and ‘Let It Go’ - a huge success for Idina Menzel from the film ‘Frozen’ - complete the first side. ‘Sing’ gave Ed Sheeran his first UK #1 and is followed by more massive #1s from Little Mix, Lukas Graham and the stunning ‘Uptown Funk’ collaboration from Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars. LP2 features pop smashes from Shawn Mendes and DNCE – and ‘Love Yourself’ by Justin Bieber hit #1 in January 2016, this was the first time ever a single artist had #1, #2, and #3 in the Singles Chart! Superb UK chart debuts from Christine And The Queens (‘Tilted’), and Rag‘n’Bone Man’s ‘Human’ lead into a stellar run of dance-pop smashes from The Chainsmokers & Coldplay, Dua Lipa, and Rita Ora. This LP also celebrates the first #1s from George Ezra and Lewis Capaldi, top 3 hits from Billie Eilish and Post Malone, the huge #1 collaboration between Calvin Harris and Sam Smith, and the 11-weeks-at-#1 sensation ‘Dance Monkey’ from Tones And I. LP2 closes with 2020’s biggest seller ‘Blinding Lights’ from The Weeknd.
The final LP features #1s from Joel Corry feat. MNEK, Ariana Grande, Lil Nas X, and the #1 debut ‘drivers license’ by Olivia Rodrigo. Glass Animals and OneRepublic both scored massive global hits with ‘Heat Waves’ and ‘I Ain’t Worried’. Elton John was back at #1 in 2021 in partnership with Dua Lipa on ‘Cold Heart’ and other hit collaborations include Lost Frequencies and Calum Scott, David Guetta & Bebe Rexha and Sam Smith & Kim Petras. The Eurovision Song Contest in 2022 produced a massive hit for Sam Ryder and in 2023 for Loreen. As the track-list comes up to date, we celebrate more biggest UK hits for Lizzo, Sam Fender, Cat Burns, and SZA. The final track - taken from the Summer of 2023 - is ‘Padam Padam’ from Kylie Minogue… an artist who has enjoyed, much like NOW That’s What I Call Music!, continued success during 5 decades from the ‘80s to the ‘20s.
