About this deal

The 13-track full-length album was recorded in multiple locations across the UK, Los Angeles and Tokyo from 2020 to 2021. It offers a glimpse into the roots of their mesmerizing sound, acting as a touchstone for their subsequent musical incarnations. Along with the beat driven tracks they took shoegaze explorations, traveled through Syd Barrett psychedelia and indulged in the eerie, entrancing minor-key drone of the Velvet Underground.

Those moments, however, were few and far between on Leisure, since much of the record was devoted to either naïve pop like "Bang" or washes of feedback and effects. If only thw mixing was done from analog, or at least remastered better for vinyl, this would have been a slam dunk.

LP on heavyweight 180 gram, audiophile vinyl and housed in a replica of the original sleeve artwork. Leisure" represents a pivotal chapter in Blur’s journey, embodying their early foray into charting the course of Britpop. Blur's debut album Leisure has now been remastered from the original tapes by Frank Arkwright, with the remastering overseen by legendary original producer, Stephen Street.
