Sex Pistols announce “Holidays In The Sun” Limited Edition 7”

Author Hernan Osuna - 6.7.2023

Sex Pistols‘ “Holidays In The Sun”, a Top 10 hit on original release in 1977, will be reissued on a limited 7″ edition coloured vinyl, out on 4 August via Universal Music.

Further establishing their legendary status, the band’s 4th single “Holidays In The Sun“, released on October 14, 1977, climbed the charts to #8 and was the single used to promote their studio album, “Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols”. It was inspired by an aborted trip to Jersey to find some sun and fun, an attempt to escape the drudgery and animosity they experienced in London.

After the 4576 copy limited release of “Anarchy in The UK“, this single sees a small run of just 4577 physical records available for collectors.

Following the success of the “God Save The Queen” 7” vinyl releases in 2022 (which is the top-selling physical single of the year and finally took the track to Number 1 on the Official Vinyl Singles Chart, 45 years to the day after it was kept off the top spot), the band’s other key singles from 76/77 will be revisited, with more to come.

Often bootlegged but never bettered, each release will be individually numbered and be officially issued on coloured vinyl for the first time, whilst the artwork will replicate the iconic UK original designed by Jamie Reid ©️Sex Pistols Residuals.
