The Big Pink’s New Album Released Today, 4AD Session Online Now & UK Tour Next Month
Coinciding with today’s release of The Big Pink’s second album, Future This, the eleventh instalment of the 4AD Sessions has just been posted online. For more details on the album, please go here. You can listen to a stream of it here.
Directed by long-term 4AD collaborators Iain and Jane, Robbie Furze and Milo Cordell are joined by live band members, Victoria Smith and Zan Lyons to help bring to life the immersive feel of the band’s music. Recorded at the 3 Mills film complex on Three Mill Island in Bromley-by-Bow, London, the stark backdrop of the warehouse space has flourishes of colour added by lasers while the band showcase four tracks from new album, Future This, plus a beautiful acoustic version of ‘Velvet’ (taken from their debut A Brief History In Love) added to complete the set.
