Public Service Broadcasting release the new single and video, “A Candle Which Will Not Be Put Out”, the third track to be taken from their upcoming album, This New Noise, released on 8 September 2023 via Test Card Recordings

A theatrical and picturesque remaster of Public Service Broadcasting’s acclaimed performance at the 2022 BBC Proms show at London’s Royal Albert Hall“A Candle Which Will Not Be Put Out” builds up from humble beginnings into a monumental chorus with the BBC Symphony Orchestra’s backing. 

Speaking of the track, which was premiered by Chris Hawkins on BBC Radio 6 MusicPublic Service Broadcasting’s J. Willgoose, Esq. said: “We really wanted to use the scale and physicality of the orchestra for a few dramatic set pieces across the Prom, and this piece is probably the best example of that. It builds on quite a simple melody until it gets to the big moment at the end, intended to be a rousing and defiant fanfare based around the notes – you guessed it – B, B and C.”

The new track follows the band’s BBC Radio 6 Music B-listed single “Broadcasting House”  as well as the album’s grandiose title piece “This New Noise”. It also arrives after the recent announcement of a host of UK indie record store signings which the band will attend during release week. This includes the band hosting a set of fully immersive 360 audio playbacks on a state-of-the-art d&b Soundscape system, with visuals, at the ICA on 10th September.

The third taste from the upcoming album and yet another emotionally enchanting ensemble. Capturing their very moving BBC proms performance. 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 arrangement oozes such power and affection.

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, 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.
