In Your Room is a box set by British synthpop duo Yazoo. It is the first Yazoo release since Only Yazoo, a 1999 greatest hits compilation album.

The set was released by Mute Records on May 26, 2008 and contains four discs.[2][3] In Your Room contains Yazoo's only two studio albums (Upstairs at Eric's and You and Me Both) in stereo and 5.1 remasters. Also included is a disc of B-sides and remixes. The fourth disc is a DVD containing the music videos for "Don't Go", "The Other Side of Love", "Nobody's Diary", "Situation" (1990 version) and "Only You" (1999 version). Clarke's current Erasure partner Andy Bell contributed a new remix of "Nobody's Diary" to the Nobody's Diary EP, released prior to the box set. Afterwards there was also the release of the Reconnected EP.

Reunion concerts[edit]

The box set was issued in conjunction with a short Yazoo tour in Europe and the U.S. It was the first time band members Vince Clarke and Alison Moyet performed together in over twenty-five years and the first time any songs from You and Me Both were played live, as the duo split shortly before the release of that album in 1983. It was also the first time Yazoo toured North America.

Clarke has said about the concerts:[2][4]

Moyet has stated:[4]
