In September 1999, CREED – a rising rock band from Tallahassee, Florida – released their second album, Human Clay. Full of anthemic hits, including “Higher,” “What If,” “Are You Ready?,” and the GRAMMY®-winning “With Arms Wide Open,” Human Clay propelled CREED (Scott Stapp, Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall, and Scott Phillips) to the top of the Billboard charts, going on to become one of the best-selling albums of all time. Now, 25 years later, CREED celebrates the anniversary of the Diamond-certified album with a bonus-filled reissue.

Arriving August 16th, the deluxe 2-CD release features the newly remastered original album and a wealth of bonus material, including a complete, never-before-heard concert recording captured in San Antonio, Texas 1999.

A deluxe digital edition of the album also features six additional bonus tracks, including alternate versions of “Higher” and “With Arms Wide Open” and a cover of the Doors classic “Roadhouse Blues” featuring The Doors guitarist and founding member Robby Krieger (recorded live at Woodstock ’99).

Fans who pre-order the album today can stream or download an advance 3-track EP, which offers “With Arms Wide Open (Live),” plus a rare acoustic performance of the same track and the newly remastered album version. All formats can be pre-ordered here.
