Silverchair's new single, "The Greatest View", will hit Australian and New Zealand record stores on Monday, January 28 it was confirmed today.

The single will feature two extra songs - "Pins In My Needles" and "Too Much Of Not Enough". Like "The Greatest View", these two other new tunes were both written and Co-produced by Daniel Johns and Produced by David Bottrill. Chairpage can exclusively reveal that "Pins In My Needles" will not be included on the band's forthcoming, as yet unscheduled, album "Diorama". It will only be available on this single. "Too Much Of Not Enough" will probably be included on "Diorama" but that is not yet 100% confirmed.

In other news, a video for "The Greatest View" will debut on Australian and New Zealand TV in mid-January. It was produced and directed by a young Brisbane based video team called Squareyed Films who have previously worked with acclaimed Aussie indie act, George.

Silverchair are currently in the studio working on a new song for possible inclusion on "Diorama". They will then hit the road on the Big Day Out Tour.

Meanwhile, "The Greatest View" continues to be embraced warmly by Australian fans. The tune has been one of the most requested tracks on request shows such as Triple J's Net 50 and the Hot 30 Countdown. Chairpage has also been bombarded by emails from fans who are liking what they're hearing.
