Pieces of a Dream is a greatest hits album by American recording artist Anastacia, released on November 7, 2005 by Epic Records. The album includes singles from her first three studio albums, Not That Kind (2000), Freak of Nature (2001), and Anastacia (2004), as well as four new songs (two duets and two solo songs) and a megamix of her greatest hits. Only two of Anastacia's singles—"Boom", the official 2002 FIFA World Cup anthem, and "Love Is a Crime", from the soundtrack to the 2002 film Chicago—were omitted from the album, but are found as remixes on the special edition of the album. Pieces of a Dream re-entered the UK Albums Chart in April 2007. The album was re-released on October 17, 2008, containing the same track listing and new artwork.
