Verve – Urban Hymns (180g Green Vinyl 2LP)


Every now and again, the world of music throws up a record that is out of the ordinary, something in its timing, quality and spirit that just feels right. The Verve’s 1997 album Urban Hymns, released in September 1997, was one such record. It captured the mood and spirit of the times with songs of an emotional and musical depth that touched a raw nerve throughout the world and ensured this band would graduate from highly respected indie favorites to a genuine rock colossus. A certified classic, Urban Hymns is one of the 20 biggest-selling albums ever in the U.K. (now 11 times platinum) and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide. The album spawned three highly successful singles. The first was the epoch-making worldwide smash “Bitter Sweet Symphony,” which trailered the album and became the sound of the summer. It was followed in the U.K. by “The Drugs Don’t Work” (No. 1) and “Lucky Man” (No. 7). 2016 remastered edition pressed on colored vinyl 2LP.
