ALMOST a year to the day since performing together for the very last time, the legendary Powderfinger are back with a brilliant new collection, Footprints - The Best of Powderfinger 2001-2011.

Footprints is the follow-up to Powderfinger's first "best of" compilation, the multi-platinum Fingerprints - The Best Of Powderfinger 1994-2000, which was released in 2004.

The album picks up the Powderfinger story from the release of the band's fifth studio album, the rock-driven, chart-topping Vulture Street (2003).

The hits and fan favourites featured on Footprints are also drawn from the band's final two albums, Dream Days at the Hotel Existence (2007) and the Finger's swan song, Golden Rule (2009), both of which similarly debuted at the top of the ARIA album charts upon release.

Footprints also features two new, never-before-heard Powderfinger songs, the glorious acoustic-based ballad 'Empty Space', which will also be released to radio on Monday 10th October, and the country-tinged rocker 'Silver Bullet'.

For those who want the full picture, Universal Music Australia will be making both collections available in a deluxe two-disc set entitled Fingerprints & Footprints: The Ultimate Collection.

Powderfinger might be gone but their music will live forever. For newcomers and lifelong fans alike, Footprints - The Best of Powderfinger 2001-2011 provides the perfect final chapter in an unforgettable music story.
