In celebration of the 15th anniversary of their album Inside In / Inside Out, The Kooks have released a special edition reissue of the project. The release comes alongside a new music video for “She Moves In Her Own Way”
Directed by Diane Martel, the visual flashes back to a young, bright-eyed band celebrating the release and success of their debut album while on the road. The video highlights the era of British indie bands of which The Kooks were heavily prominent figures.
“We’re delighted that Inside In/Inside Out has been reissued to celebrate its 15th anniversary,” said The Kooks’ Luke Pritchard. “It brings back so many fond memories of our early days as a band and we can’t wait to celebrate it again on tour next year.”
Inside In / Inside Out was originally released in 2006. The band’s debut album topped the UK official albums chart and has since garnered over 1.3 billion streams on Spotify alone. The album found hits in “She Moves In Her Own Way”, “Seaside” and the band’s Top Five single “Naive.”
The anniversary reissue features alternative takes on album tracks “Seaside” and “Ooh La” as well as the original studio demos of “Sofia Song,” “Matchbox” and “Something To Say.” The band has also shared early studio demos and acoustic demos of songs like “Theory of a Pop Star” and “Constantine’s Love.”
Also featured in the reissue is an 8,000-word sleeve note based on new interviews with the original band members.
For the first time ever, The Kooks will be performing Inside In / Inside Out in its entirety to a live audience. The anniversary tour will kick off in January 2022 with ten dates held across the UK. The tour will wrap up with two nights at London’s O2 Brixton Academy in February. Ticket information can be found on the band’s official website.
