Last week, Supergrass released an expanded and remastered version of their second album, ‘In It For The Money’.

Reissued in three different formats, it will be the first time it’s been made available on vinyl since its original release in April 1997.

The album, which was voted in NME’s Top 10 Albums of 1997, reached Number Two on the UK chart and spawned the hits ‘Going Out’, ‘Richard III’, ‘Sun Hits the Sky’ and ‘Late In The Day’. It has since sold over one million copies worldwide.

Supergrass reunited back in 2019 to perform at Glastonbury’s annual Pilton Party, before announcing their own string of 2020 dates, including a pair of massive London shows at Alexandra Palace.

Discussing their comeback last year, frontman Gaz Coombes told NME: “I find the music industry quite exciting at the moment because it’s so new and embryonic in so many ways. It’s quite mad. Where the fuck is it going to go? I’m quite interested to be on that journey and see where it goes.

“I’m fascinated to see where Supergrass fits in with all that next year. We’re going to have a laugh and bring that Supergrass energy and joy into a slightly disturbed world.”

Last year, the band released a new live album to help support the #SaveOurVenues campaign.
