After reuniting for a surprise show this past Friday (September 6), Supergrass have announced an official reunion tour and a new greatest hits collection. The Gaz Coombes-fronted group will release Supergrass: The Strange Ones 1994 - 2008 on January 24, 2020, via BMG. The deluxe box set, which arrives nearly 25 years after the band’s debut I Should Coco, includes the band’s six albums, as well as bonus CDs with unreleased live material, B-sides, remixes, rarities, demos, and more. The Strange Ones also features unreleased tracks, including the band’s cover of the Police’s “Next to You,” which you can hear below.

Supergrass broke up in 2010, stating at the time, “We still love each other but, cliche notwithstanding, musical differences have led to us moving on.” In a press release for the band’s reunion tour, Danny Goffey said, “Everything aligned for us to make this happen for 2020. It was the first time that we collectively felt the buzz to get back in a room together and play the songs. We’re extremely excited to get out there and bring a bit of Supergrass joy to all our fans... and their extended families.”
In an interview with Andrew Trendell for NME, Gaz Coombes said, “We’ve been talking about it for a while. I remember talking to Danny about on the phone maybe a year ago. We knew that 2020 was coming up and that would make it 25 years since the beginning and 10 years since the split.” He added, “We just wanted to play and see what happens. It felt great.”
