Breakout American Idol star and Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips’ debut album The World From the Side of the Moon (19 Entertainment/Interscope Records) has been certified platinum by the R.I.A.A. in the U.S. less than a year after its release. Released in November 2012 The World From the Side of the Moon debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart and #1 on the Billboard Rock Album chart and has gone on to sell over 1 million copies.
To thank fans for their support Phillips is re-releasing his debut album to include three additional live tracks. Live versions of “Gone, Gone, Gone,” “Where We Came From” and “Man on the Moon” will join the live version of his hit single “Home” that is on the original album. This fan edition of The World From the Side of the Moon is due November 19th, on the one-year anniversary of the album’s original release. Fans can also purchase the three tracks as a separate set titled Phillip Philips: Live.  The new live songs were recorded during stops on John Mayer’s Born and Raised tour.

 

Says Phillips, “I’m so thankful for all who have supported me and my music this year. Live music is my passion and I want to be able to share that with my fans. ”

The World From the Side of the Moon’s first two singles “Home” and “Gone, Gone, Gone” have hit Number One on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart, putting Phillips in the company of only eight other male solo artists who have achieved the same feat. “Home” sees sales of over 4.7 million making it the most successful single of any American Idol winner.  The album’s third single, “Where We Came From” is one of nine tracks on the album Phillips wrote or co-wrote.
