2011 reissue[edit]

Pride was reissued on 2011 by Culture Factory USA, an independent label that specialises in cult artists. The reissue CD was packaged in a miniature replica of the original quality vinyl packaging complete with an inner sleeve that features the original lyrics, photographs of Palmer and credits for the album. The label side of the CD features a replica of what the original Island label looked like at the time of issue and even features "grooves" as if the black CD is made of vinyl.

It was strictly limited to 3,000 copies worldwide. The reissues did not have any additional outtakes or bonus tracks.[4]
