Super Deluxe box set containing: 35 previously unreleased tracks. Collection features 25 demos & 13 songs never released in any form by Gomez, including covers of Neil Young’s “Unknown Legend” and “T-Bone Walker’s Mean Old World” plus the band’s 1998 Glastonbury performance and BBC sessions.

Package includes a 10,000-word essay by music writer Paul Stokes, with new interviews with the band and those close to them.

“No other record captures that period so perfectly,” says Elbow’s Guy Garvey. “The concerns of the songs. The stories, the experimental sounds. It was so brave for a band to record themselves at that time: it allowed a direct and undiluted account of the band as aspirational, big-hearted friends in love with making music and each other. It dared us to record ourselves. But they did it first. It’s the most deserving recipient of the Mercury Prize in its history: a breathlessly ambitious and lovingly crafted masterpiece. It should be called Bring It 'The Fuck' On.”

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Gomez’s Mercury Music Prize winning debut album, Bring It On will be re-mastered and reissued as a super-deluxe 4CD.

Bring It On is Gomez's half a million selling debut album (UK) that was recently voted the all-time best Mercury Music Prize winner by BBC 6 Music listeners.

The 4CD contains the original album remastered by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road studios and 35 previously unreleased tracks including 25 demos (recorded between January 1996 and August 1997) - 13 of which are appearing on an official Gomez release for the first time, including covers of Neil Young’s Unknown Legend and T-Bone Walker’s Mean Old World.

A previously unreleased recording of the band’s set at Glastonbury in 1998 will feature alongside B-sides (also remastered by Arkwright) and BBC sessions, as well as 10,000 word sleevenotes featuring interviews with the band and music industry insiders that details their meteoric rise to stardom with Bring It On.
