MR. BIG issued a new "best-of" album titled "Next Time Around" on April 29 through WHD Entertaiment. The collection includes songs that were voted on by fans and contains two previously unreleased songs, "Next Time Around" (2009 remastered version) and "Hold Your Head Up" (2009 remastered version). It was made available as a limited deluxe edition with a bonus DVD.

It contains — besides a CD with never previously released tracks and b-sides and a 160-page book about the band — remastered versions of the bands ten albums. All albums have been remastered by Chris Athens, who has previously mastered albums such as COLDPLAY's "X & Y", N*E*R*D's "Fly Or Die" and KELIS's "Tasty". Athens has also worked with remastering music of world artists like OZZY OSBOURNE and JOHNNY CASH.
