"Saturday Night"

"Lazy" is the fourth single from the album Coming Up by Suede, released on April 7, 1997, on Nude Records. It was also the fourth single from the album to reach the top ten, peaking at number nine.[1]

The video for the song was directed by Pedro Romhanyi, who previously made videos for the band's songs, "Animal Nitrate", "Beautiful Ones" and "Saturday Night". The rather abstract clip features mostly slow motion shots of the band relaxing inside a bedsit, as singer Brett Anderson peers through a tiny gap in the floorboards into his neighbour's apartment. At one point in the video, keyboardist Neil Codling is seen laughing as a he feeds a mushroom to some goldfish before confronting Brett Anderson with a mirror he positions in a way which shows their faces combining as one.

"Lazy" was produced by Ed Buller, while the additional B-side tracks were by Bruce Lampcov. The song "Digging a Hole" on CD2 was written and performed solo by keyboard player Neil Codling on lead vocals, although is still credited as Suede.
