Release and Reception
The album has been released with the Copy Control protection system in some regions. After the release of the album in mid-2002, the band toured with Michelle Branch and Nikka Costa. They also toured with Matchbox Twenty and Sugar Ray during some of their shows in 2003.
The first single "Harder to Breathe", released a month after the album, slowly started to pick up airplay which helped spur sales of the album. By March 2004, the album had reached the top 20 of the Billboard 200, and had reached the top 10 by the end of the year. "Harder to Breathe" had also made the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles charts. Songs About Jane had also eventually topped the UK and Australian album charts while "Harder to Breathe" had made the singles charts in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. The second single "This Love" had also made the U.S. top 10 singles charts and top 10 of the Australian singles charts as at March 2004. The video also had to be edited to avoid it being banned from MTV.
Songs About Jane was the seventh best-selling album of 2004 in the U.S., with about 2.7 million copies sold. In Australia, the album did not chart on the End of Year Charts until 2004, where it reached No. 6. As of April 2012, it has sold 4,819,000 copies in the United States

“We read poetry because the poets, like ourselves, have been haunted by the inescapable tyranny of time and death; have suffered the pain of loss, and the more wearing, continuous pain of frustration and failure; and have had moods of unlooked-for release and peace.
