180 Gram Vinyl Record
25th Anniversary Edition of the debut album by the Danish-Norwegian band
Aqua's seminal 1997 album Aquarium turned 25 in 2022 — the debut studio album by Danish-Norwegian band Aqua was originally released on March 26, 1997. Although the group had been together for three years under their original name Joyspeed, their only release under that name was a single called "Itzy Bitsy Spider." The album is best known for including the successful singles "Barbie Girl," "Doctor Jones" and "Turn Back Time," the first of those being a huge hit around the world.
The 25th Anniversary reissue edition features 11 original Aquarium tracks — including "Barbie Girl," "Doctor Jones," "Roses Are Red," "Happy Boys & Girls" and more — plus the limited edition bonus track "Didn't I."
"With the release of our debut album, we had six major hit singles and experienced great success around the world," Lene Nystrøm said of the album, describing it as the "ultimate Aqua moment."
She added: "We wanted to make the best pop album in the world, and take Aqua to a new universe, a new sound, searching for the good tunes and lyrics that always has been Aqua's trademark."
