Suede's self-titled debut album from 1993 will be reissued in July for its 30th anniversary. This vinyl edition features remastered audio cut at half-speed for optimum audio quality.
Suede is unarguably a landmark British album of the 1990s, and was both a critical and commercial triumph, winning the Mercury Music Prize and entering the UK Album Chart at number one, in April 1993 (knocking Depeche Mode's Songs of Faith and Devotion off the summit). Frontman Brett Anderson pointedly calls it "the first Britpop album" while dissociating it and Suede the band from the 'Cool Britannia' type movement that followed; "It certainly wasn't a celebration of some imaginary view of British life... some fantasy, Carnaby Street, 1960s thing" he said. Bass player Mat Osman perhaps put it best suggesting that in the wider context of Britpop, Suede was "Dr Frankenstein, but not the monster".
Such was the momentum and excitement generated by the band's first three singles (‘The Drowners’, Metal Mickey’, and ‘Animal Nitrate’), Suede sold 100,000 copies in its first week, making it one of the fastest-selling debut albums in the UK, at the time. A fourth and final single, 'So Young' was issued about a month after the album was issued in May '93.
Pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl, housed in a poly-lined inner sleeve, featuring an obi strip and a 4-page booklet insert.
