To celebrate the 15th anniversary of their debut album, ‘St Jude’, Courteeners are releasing the 15th Anniversary Edition of the iconic album on numerous physical formats on 13th January 2023
The new edition includes brand new single ‘It’ll Take More Than A Weekend Away To Fix This Mess’, which is set for release on 7th September at 5pm BST. It was written around the time of ‘St. Jude’ sessions and was unearthed and recorded recently in L.A (Lower Ancoats) and produced by Liam Fray and Joe Cross .
The band will perform a 45K hometown show at Heaton Park in Manchester on 9th June 2023 to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the gig, which will drive pre-orders via pre-order for pre-sale. Courteeners huge single ‘Not Nineteen Forever’ will hit 1 million UK sales in early September and there will be a nice moment around this with a Dolby Atmos release, 4K video and disc presentation.
The album originally peaked in the UK album chart at #4 in April 2008, so the aim is to surpass the previous peak position.
St Jude was awarded the Guardian First Album Award upon release in April 2008. The album contains three Top 40 singles, Not Nineteen Forever, What Took You So Long? and No You Didn’t, No You Don’t. It was produced by Stephen Street and has been remastered for its 15th anniversary by John Davis at Metropolis Studios, who also mastered the album back in 2008.
This limited edition 2LP set will be pressed on 180g grey vinyl and features the original 12 track album remastered, plus original bonus tracks and additional rare acoustic versions.
