About this album

Meds is Placebo’s fifth album. The album was released in most countries on 13 March , although it was released three days earlier in Australia (standard and special editions) and New Zealand (standard edition only). Illegal copies had previously been available on the Internet since 17 January 2006, prior to the official announcement of the release. Because I Want You, released on 6 March 2006, is the first UK single from the album. The first single outside of the UK is Song to Say Goodbye, released on the same date. The second single from Meds was Infra-Red, released on 19 June 2006 in the UK. The third and final single was Meds, which received significant exposure in the U.S.; it was within the 50 most-played songs as of mid-May 2006.

Placebo had planned to record a more electronic-, keyboard-driven sound on Meds; however, producer Dimitri Tikovoi convinced a back-to-basics approach, which Brian Molko recounted in Zero Magazine:

“It was our producer’s agenda really, which we didn’t really know about until we got into the studio. …We were in a place that was very much about samplers and computers and vintage synthesisers. This recording session really became about playing again. We were in an old-school studio so there were no real tricks to hide behind.”

On the theme of the record, Molko says:
