Sunburn was Muses first big single in the UK, reaching 22 in the UK pop charts. Mushroom did a lot of promotional work to get this single up the charts, including TV interviews and promo spots on Top of the Pops and TFI friday.

This was the first of 3 singles to have a promotional box sleeve sent out to members of the fan list (people who filled out and returned the white Muse card). The empty box was complete when it contained both CD1 and CD2.

Sunburn was originally performed entirely on guitar, but was reworked half way through recording Showbiz to use the piano. Matt wasn't comfortable playing the piano part live - so live promotional performances used a session musician to play the piano bits. This didn't go well, and soon after Matt taught himself to play the piano parts live.

A collectable 3" CD single set in a clear 5" plastic disc.
