1990s alternative rock icons Garbage have announced a 20th anniversary reissue of their 1998 sophomore album, Version 2.0, which has sold four million copies worldwide to date. It includes a second disc of 10 B-sides. The band has shared one of those B-sides, rarity “Lick the Pavement.” The reissue is due out June 22 via Stunvolume/[PIAS]. Listen to “Lick the Pavement” below, followed by the reissue’s tracklist.

Garbage’s last album, Strange Little Birds, came out in 2016.

Garbage’s Shirley Manson had this to say about the issue in a press release: “Version 2:0 is in my opinion the quintessential garbage record. We are all very grateful to the millions of people who took it to their hearts at the time it was released and to those who continue to love on it still.”

The band’s Butch Vig had this to say: “Version 2.0 is the sound of a band growing up, evolving, and more than anything, gaining confidence. When we started recording, we made a conscious decision to not re-invent ourselves, but rather take everything we learned from our debut album and filter it through the new digital technology we were grappling with. Sonically, the album has moments of razor sharp clarity and soft beauty. Indeed, it’s possibly our best album.”
