Sleeper have announced that they will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of their debut album "Smart" with a deluxe reissue and a UK this summer.
The deluxe edition of "Smart" will be released on June 5th on CD, and a limited edition colored vinyl LP. Both versions will feature 10 b-sides and rarities.
The band will also be playing the album in full on their upcoming UK summer tour that feature support from The Bluetones, who will be playing 'Expecting To Fly' in full.
Louise Wener had this to say, "We can't believe it's 25 years since SMART was released. On the day it came out we all jumped on the 73 bus to HMV Oxford Street to see the giant window display.
"Andy and Jon got a bollocking from staff for putting the vinyl at No.1 in the racks - by Saturday it ended up at No.5 - still a totally surreal feeling. We cannot wait to play this record in full and take it out on tour." See the tracklisting and tour dates below:
