New album from The Wedding Present

The Wedding Present release Going, Going … via Scopitones on 2nd September.

It will be available in three audio-visual formats: standard CD and DVD, deluxe CD and DVD in hard-bound ‘book pack’ with extra tracks + lyrics, and a deluxe double 180g LP and DVD with extra tracks and lyrics.

Of the multi-media project, band leader David Gedge says, “I’d already decided … that I didn’t want to make the next release just ‘another album’ and so I came up with the idea of twenty ‘interconnected’ pieces of music. Then, in the summer of 2014 I travelled across the USA with photographer Jessica McMillan and we made some atmospheric short films to accompany the tracks. Since then it’s been a case of progressing through the music, trying all sorts of ideas, seeing how they work set against the visuals.”
