Suede / Bloodsports 10th anniversary

The comeback album comes back

Suede’s 2013 ‘comeback’ album Bloodsports is being reissued early next year for its 10th anniversary.

After reforming for a charity concert at the Royal Albert Hall for the Teenage Cancer Trust in 2010, Suede decided to ‘stay together’ and record a new album.

Bloodsports was recorded with Ed Buller, producer of the band’s first three albums and issued in March 2013. it features the singles “It Starts And Ends with You”, “Hit Me” and “For The Strangers”.

The 2CD edition in deluxe seven-inch packaging

There’s two physical editions for this anniversary release. The first is a 2CD set in deluxe seven-inch packaging (the same as for the debut album reissue earlier this year). The attraction with this particular package is all eight non-album tracks collected for the first time on one CD.

Fans may recall that the bonus track situation when this album first came out was a mess, with iTunes bonus tracks via a ‘digital deluxe’, Japan-only bonus tracks, deluxe box sets without promised bonus tracks, and so on. The first time they were all issued on CD was via the now long out-of-print CD singles box set from 2014, but of course for that set they were spread across the four CD singles. This new 2CD brings them all together.

The vinyl version is half-speed mastered and comes in a gatefold sleeve with OBI-strip, four-page insert with lyrics/credits and a poly-lined inner.

Bloodsports will be reissued on 23 February 2024, via Demon Music.
