It’s been 21 years since the release of Leisure, Blur’s debut, and the band has celebrated by compiling their body of work for one massive boxset. Their first five albums have been re-mastered, with the entire set overseen by Graham Coxon and producer Stephen Street. Aside from the seven album collection, more than 5 and a half hours of bonus material are included, 65 previously unreleased tracks, twice as many rare recordings, 3 DVD’s, and in a collector’s edition book, featuring unseen photos and a new interview with the band. There’s even a 7-inch vinyl featuring a track recorded under the band’s original name, Seymour.
Aside from the 21-disc Deluxe Box Set, all 7 studio albums will be available separately, each with a second disc of b-sides, previously hard-to-find tracks and exclusive bonus material.
Record collectors won’t be left in the dark, either, with six of the seven albums on double-vinyl, highlighting iconic artwork and visuals from Banksy, David Shrigley, Graham Coxon, and more. The vinyl box set will include a download code to access all of the bonus material digitally. Each of the 7 LPs will also be available separately on heavyweight vinyl.
Look out for the collection on July 31st, and head to Blur’s official site for the full info, including the entire tracklist and detailed bonus information.
