Public Service Broadcasting today announce This New Noise, the newly remixed and remastered live recording of their acclaimed 2022 BBC Proms show at London’s Royal Albert Hall, released on 8 September 2023 via Test Card Recordings (pre-order / pre-save it HERE). 

A celebration of the power of radio written in recognition of the centenary of the BBC, This New Noise saw the band joining forces with the 88 piece BBC Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Jules Buckley. A standout performance from 2022’s BBC Proms, it received 5*s in The Telegraph who called it “a resonant, timely and ultimately touching show”. Founder member J. Willgoose, Esq. remixed the concert from scratch, bringing out even more depth and texture from a multi-layered performance and showing it in a new light.

This New Noise is the second time Public Service Broadcasting have been commissioned for the BBC Proms. In 2019 the band performed an orchestral arrangement of their 2015 studio album The Race for Space with The Multi-Story Orchestra to mark the 50th anniversary of the first manned mission to the Moon.

In conjunction with the announcement, the band share “Broadcasting House”. 

The entire performance of “Broadcasting House” is truly mesmeric. To see the prolific giants of Public Service Broadcasting and their vision with the release be transformed with the dramatic touch of the Symphony Orchestra, the results are captivating. A new depth to the emotive resilience of this release, the cutting intensity heightened with the plethora of instruments.

Public Service Broadcasting’s J. Willgoose, Esq. said: “At the time, not knowing if the Proms performance would be a true one-off, I tried to focus on enjoying the occasion as much as possible. It was a privilege to play with such skilled performers as the BBC SO and especially under such an astute guiding hand in Jules. I’m absolutely delighted that we’re releasing This New Noise in physical form, and remixing it allowed me to discover all over again the intricacy and dynamism of the orchestra’s performance.

Jules Buckley added: “For the BBC Symphony Orchestra, and for myself, to be able to make music with PSB was just beautiful. The musical message from J. Willgoose, Esq. and the fellas from the band is as current and powerful now as it’s ever been. We can’t take for granted what we have, and I’m really proud we are able to deliver this orchestral performance from the BBC Proms to the public in record form.
