MedsVirgin Records is re-releasing Meds, the newest album by London-based alternative rock trio PLACEBO on January 23, 2007, the label announced. The album was originally released in the U.S. earlier in 2006 through the Astralwerks label.


The Virgin Records edition of Meds, described by the band as a back-to-basics project with the elemental feeling of a first album, will add three songs not on the Astralwerks release: “Lazarus,” “UNEEDMEMORETHANINEEDU,” and a cover of Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill.” R.E.M.‘s Michael Stipe duets on the track “Broken Promise” and Alison Mosshart of The Kills is a guest on the title track.


Along with the growing alternative radio coverage of title single, the band has racked up over 4 million streams of the songs posted in the PLACEBO MySpace.com page. “Running Up That Hill,” the trio’s cover of the Kate Bush mid-‘80s classic, has been recently featured on two U.S. television series, Bones and The O.C. - Virgin


Stream “Meds (She Wants Revenge Remix)”

The music video “I Wish (In Search of the Missing Children)” by Vienna was produced by a group of young professionals whose aim is to reach out to people to help find Missing Children around the United States of America.


The song is about the sorrow of losing someone dear and a desperate longing to be with that person.  It’s a cry to be heard, to be given another chance to see and be with that person and the pledge that expresses undying love for the missing one. The song is based on a real-life experience of a mother who lost her little one at the most unexpected time.


The producers felt that the song “I Wish” plays a vital role in this music video in search of the missing children around the US.  The words and the music in this song speaks to its purpose.


The people behind this video production offered their sincere intentions, their God-given talents and their devoted time to come up with a music video that would hopefully help pave the way to finding “The Lost”. - MissingChildrenVideo.com
