Re-issueEdit

After touring North America in the latter half of 2015 promoting their Have You Heard EP, The Struts announced that they would be releasing their U.S. debut, a re-release of their original album with new tracks, to be released on FreeSolo and Interscope Records.[5]

Through an Instagram post[6] by Luke Spiller and a tweet[7] by Gethin Davies, it was confirmed that this release of Everybody Wants will feature new tracks, plus remastered or rerecordings of most of the songs off the original 2014 release.[8] It ended up being five new tracks ("Mary Go Round," "The Ol' Switcheroo," "Young Stars," "These Times are Changing" and "Only Just a Call Away"), three from the original release were dropped ("My Machine," "You & I" and "Let's Make This Happen Tonight") and one, "She Makes Me Feel," was retitled to "She Makes Me Feel Like." While keeping the original album's title, the reissue has different cover art.
