Runner Runner, currently on tour with 2AM Club (also a "NOW What's Next" artist), have launched an album pre-order campaign on their official website, giving away a free acoustic EP.

To be released the same day as NOW 36, NOW That's What I Call The 1990s: The Alternative Pop Collection brings together 18 of the decade's top chart hits, including New Radicals' "You Get What You Give," Spin Doctors' "Two Princes," Barenaked Ladies' "One Week," Meredith Brooks' "Bitch," Sheryl Crow's "If It Makes You Happy," Joan Osborne's "One Of Us," Lisa Loeb's "Stay (I Missed You)," Des'Ree's "You Gotta Be," Duran Duran's "Ordinary World," Shawn Mullins' "Lullabye," Edwin McCain's "I'll Be," Tonic's "If You Could Only See," Vertical Horizon's "Everything You Want," Everclear's "Father Of Mine," Live's "I Alone," Collective Soul's "Shine," Blind Melon's "No Rain," and Sublime's "What I Got."
