Super Furry Animals / Rings Around The World 3CD reissue

Rings Around The World, the fifth studio album from Welsh quintet Super Furry Animals, has been remastered and will be reissued and expanded in September for its 20th anniversary.

The 2001 album was the band’s major label debut (released on Epic) and was shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize in that same year.

The singles were ‘(Drawing) Rings Around The World’, ‘It’s Not The End of the World?’ and ‘Juxtapozed with U’. Paul McCartney and John Cale make cameo appearances on the album too.

‘Juxtapozed with U’ was the first single taken from the album

The 20th anniversary release sees the album remastered from the original tapes and re-released on 2LP vinyl (there’s no bonus seven-inch as per the original vinyl first pressing). The three-CD deluxe edition should be of great interest since this is where all the bonus material resides, and there’s a lot of it; 33 previously unreleased tracks including remixes, demos, and outtakes (full track listing, below).
