Following teasers late yesterday about a special announcement to mark the 21st anniversary of Leisure‘s release, Blur have confirmed the details of a super – and we mean super – deluxe box set. Blur 21 will be released on 30 July and will be available in various guises. A 21 disc box set will be released featuring:
Special editions of all seven studio albums, each with accompanying bonus disc material of unreleased extras, exclusive artwork postcards, unseen photographs and liner notes based on new interviews with the band (these will also be available individually).
Four discs of rarities, exclusive to this set. Includes 3½ hours of previously unreleased material.
Three DVDs including over 2 hours of previously unreleased footage. Includes two pivotal live shows and an exclusive disc of video rarities.
Collectable 7″ single of the rare and previously unreleased live recording of the Seymour-era Blur song Superman.
Deluxe hard-bound book telling the story of Blur’s 21 year career with extensive liner notes based on a brand new interviews with the band, illustrated with imagery of the era, including some previously unseen photos.
There will be a heavyweight vinyl edition box set too.
