  • Description
  • Release details
  • Rough Trade Records will release a 15th Anniversary Edition of The Long Blondes' debut album, the acclaimed "Someone To Drive You Home", at the end of 2021.

    "Someone To Drive You Home" was originally released on November 6, 2006

    The predominant theme of the album is relationships from a female perspective, although ten of the tracks on the album were written by guitarist Dorian Cox. Other themes include competition between women, isolation, sexual exploration and betrayal

    The debut from the Sheffield band, whose noir atmosphere and vivid storytelling have spawned a host of indie disco classics - qualities that were also the inspiration for the recent film "Giddy Stratospheres", a tragicomedy that takes its name from The Long Blondes' cult single - has achieved the rare feat of capturing the zeitgeist of the 2000s while leaving a timeless artistic mark.

    The new anniversary edition of "Someone To Drive You Home" comes as a limited edition double LP in gatefold sleeve. It is pressed on red and yellow vinyl to reflect the artwork of the album, complemented by a picture of actress Faye Dunaway, painted by singer Kate Jackson. In addition to the original album, the record includes eleven additional tracks that The Long Blondes used as B-sides.

    PS: The band already released some listening impressions from the album with a new remastered version of the single "Giddy Stratospheres" along with the B-side "Never To Be Repeated". The video for the song has also been restored and released in HD for the first time.
