Upon its initial release in September 1996, Coming Up was both a critical and commercial success.

The sequel to their eponymous chart-topping 1993 debut and 1994’s number-three album Dog Man Star, Coming Up also topped the UK album chart, as well as being nominated for the 1997 Mercury Prize.

Coming Up also spawned five UK top-10 singles in Trash, Beautiful Ones, Saturday Night, Lazy and Filmstar, making the record Suede’s most commercially successful to date.
