Dancing is a compilation album by Italian singer Elisa that was released on July 15, 2008 in CD format in the United States and Canada. A digital version on iTunes was released on June 17, 2008 in the United States and on August 25, 2008 in Canada.

The album, released as part of an effort to introduce Elisa to North American audiences, is a compilation of recordings (some remixed) from previously released albums dating back to 2000.

Released of the full album was preceded by the released of an EP featuring the song "Dancing" which was released in December 2007. Beside the title track, the EP includes "Rock Your Soul" (also included on the Dancing album), along with a live version of '"Dancing'" recorded at the iTunes Festival in London.

The first single from the album is Rainbow[2] in a new remix edition by Glen Ballard.

Track origins[edit]

The songs on the album were chosen by Elisa and are culled from most of her albums, with the exception of her first, Pipes & Flowers.

There is only one song from her second album Asile's World (2000): "A Little Over Zero." However this is a remixed version of the original.

From the album Then Comes the Sun (2001) comes "Dancing", "Stranger", "Rainbow" and "Rock Your Soul".

The songs from Lotus (2003) are: "Broken", "Electricity"; "Yashal" and the much-covered Leonard Cohen song, "Hallelujah".

The songs from Pearl Days (2004) are: "The Waves", "City Lights" and "Life Goes On".

Three additional tracks (sources unknown) are included as bonus tracks on the Canadian CD issue: "Stay", "Una Poesia Anche Per Te" (Italian version of "Life Goes On") and "Qualcosa che non c'è". Another track, "Wild Horses", was available only in the US through iTunes.

Tour[edit]

To support the album, Elisa toured the United States and Canada between October 29 and November 24, 2008.
