It’s been 25 years since the release of Tom Cochrane’s landmark album, Mad Mad World, which has its deluxe edition reissue in stores and on streaming services today via Universal Music Canada. The remastered 2-CD set includes the previously-unreleased original demo recording of “Life is a Highway,” from which grew the career-defining single, as well as a 1992 concert performance from Chicago featuring key tracks from the album alongside Red Rider classics.

Mad Mad World remains among the top-selling albums in Canadian music history, achieving rare Diamond-certified status on the strengths of such hit singles as the title track, “Sinking Like A Sunset,” and, of course, “Life Is A Highway,” which reigned at #1 for six weeks in Canada, reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100, and went on to become recognized the world over.
