It’s an absolute masterclass in modern pop songwriting from Ian Broudie. Kicking off with their classic debut single ‘Pure’, this really is a greatest hits disc worthy of the title from a band who have sold over 8 million albums. Across 20 tracks the LP features Lightning Seeds favourites including ‘The Life Of Riley’, ‘Change’, ‘Lucky You’, ‘Sense’, ‘All I Want’, ‘Sugar Coated Iceberg’, ‘You Showed Me’, ‘Emily Smiles’, ‘3 Lions’ and more.


Ian Broudie said: “Wow, I can’t believe it’s been 35 years! Our first single ‘Pure’ really opened the door to a life’s worth of songs, shows and recordings. I owe everything to ‘Pure’ and I’m really looking forward to celebrating the 35th anniversary of its release with ‘Tomorrow’s Here Today: 35 Years of Lightning Seeds’ greatest hits album and tour in 2024.”
