Hoch wie nie (loosely translated, "Higher than Ever Before") is the name of the 2007 posthumously-published 'Best of' double album by Austrian musician Falco, who died in 1998. The Longplayer was published on Falco's 50th birthday. It was released in two versions. The Limited edition additionally contains the song "Urban Tropical" (original flipside of the "Rock Me Amadeus" single from 1985), which was only available on vinyl before. There is also a Falco DVD with the same name available now, which is a documentary about Falco's life and career. In the non-European countries the album was released on 2 August 2007.
