The Bluetones announce 25th anniversary edition of Expecting To Fly

The Bluetones Expecting To Fly
The Bluetones released Expecting To Fly in February 1996.

The Britpop party was in full swing by the time The Bluetones were preparing to release their debut album, but its success proved there was still room for more.

25 years after Expecting To Fly briefly knocked the behemoth of (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? off the top of the UK chart, an anniversary edition has been announced for July 16th.
