20th anniversary release gets the five-disc treatment
Suede’s 1996 album ‘Coming Up’ is being reissued as a five-disc deluxe set for its 20th anniversary.
Out on September 30, the new edition includes its B-sides, a disc of previously-unreleased demos and a full 15-song show from Amsterdam.
The fifth disc is a DVD featuring five appearances from Top Of The Pops, a three-song set from Later With Jools Holland, Suede’s performance of ‘By The Sea’ from the Mercury Music Prize ceremony and an hour-long interview with the album’s producer Ed Buller.
‘Coming Up’ was Suede’s first album featuring Richard Oakes on guitar, following the departure of Bernard Butler around the release of previous album ‘Dog Man Star’ in 1994.
A limited edition £60 version of the box-set, numbered to 750 copies and only available on Amazon, adds a 10” single featuring the first three songs recorded with Oakes, which were released on the ‘Dog Man Star’ B-sides. These were ‘Together’, ‘Asda Town’ and ‘Bentswood Boys’.
‘Coming Up’ features the singles ‘Trash’, ‘Filmstar’, ‘Lazy’, ‘Beautiful Ones’ and ‘Saturday Night’.
Suede released utterly magnificent new album ‘Night Thoughts’ in January. The band are currently on tour in Hong Kong before playing the festivals Together The People on September 4 and Rockaway Beach on October 10.
