Coming Up is the third album by English alternative rock band Suede, released on 2 September 1996 through Nude Records. It was the band's first album since the departure of guitarist Bernard Butler, who was replaced by Richard Oakes. Also added to the band was keyboardist Neil Codling. The album was nominated for the 1997 Mercury Prize
Released September 2, 1996. Whereas with Dog Man Star the band had attempted to move away from the boozy, fake Britpop movement, Coming Up went back towards it, opting for a much more commercially viable sound. This indeed picked Suede up out of the gutter, topping the success they’d found with their debut, Suede, giving them the best-selling album of their career. In contrast to their somewhat gloomy previous two records, Coming Up is much brighter and poppier, now with even more showy vocal performances from Anderson and big synth leads from the newly-recruited keyboardist, Neil Codling
The most striking thing about Coming Up is the simplicity.
Coming Up is still a very good album, though. Anderson's lyrics are considerably more superficial and humorous than they had been in the past; this would eventually become a problem, but on uptempo, fluorescent rock songs like "Beautiful Ones" and "Trash" it works because these songs are just so damned catchy. The huge success of Coming Up left Suede in a position to do basically anything they wanted with their next album, but it took three years for the band to put together the follow-up. Codling was at times bed-ridden with chronic fatigue syndrome after the grueling 18-month world tour in support of Coming Up, and Anderson had fallen deeper into drug addiction, especially crack.
