‘Parachutes’ includes the band’s first major hit ‘Yellow’ – the song that launched the band on the international stage, as well as ‘Shiver’, ‘Trouble’ and ‘Don’t Panic.’ To mark the album's 20th anniversary, the videos for its four singles have been restored to HD quality.
In 2001, following the release of ‘Parachutes’, the band were nominated for five BRIT Awards, winning both Best British Album and Best British Group. The band have gone on to win Best British Album three times and Best British Group four times, alongside a host of other awards.
Parachutes was described by Rolling Stone as ‘a work of real transcendence’ and by Melody Maker as a “masterpiece”. NME declared ‘It's incredible this is a debut album.’
