Away from the Sun is the second studio album by American rock band 3 Doors Down, released on November 12, 2002. The singles released for the album were as follows: "When I'm Gone", "The Road I'm On", "Here Without You" and "Away from the Sun". Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson produced three songs for the record: "Dangerous Game", "Dead Love" and "Wasted Me". Lifeson also performed on one of the tracks as well as performing live with the band during their premiere party in Biloxi for Away from the Sun. The album has sold four million copies worldwide, including well over three million in the US alone.
This album was included among a group of 15 DualDisc releases that were test marketed in two cities: Boston and Seattle. The test market DualDisc version of the album is rare. The DualDisc has the standard album on one side, and bonus material on the second side.
The DualDisc version was later reissued in a more widely distributed version. The original test market version differs from this common version in both packaging elements and in the design of the back of the inlay card.
