Showbiz is the debut studio album by English rock band Muse. It was released on 28 September 1999 in the United States by Maverick Records and 4 October 1999 in the United Kingdom by Mushroom Records and Taste Media. Recorded between April and May at RAK Studios and Sawmills Studio, respectively, the album was produced by John Leckie and Paul Reeve in conjunction with the band. Showbiz was a moderate commercial success, reaching number 29 on the UK Albums Chart.
Showbiz was released in various regions around the world through the band’s different regional labels: Naïve in France, Motor in Germany, Russia, Turkey and Ukraine, Maverick in the United States, Play It Again Sam (PIAS) in Benelux, and Avex Trax in Japan. The album was also released earlier by some labels: in France, it was released on 7 September, the Motor edition was sold from 20 September, and the album entered American stores on 28 September. A bonus CD was released in Benelux, which contained the same content as the Random 1-8 extended play, without the hidden remixes of “Sunburn”.
