With her highly-anticipated debut album ‘Collapsed In Sunbeams’ arriving on 29th January, Arlo Parks has announced that she’ll be premiering a brand new ‘Variety Hour Special’ style show ‘Tonight With Arlo Parks’ on Amazon Music that same day.
Joined by Romy (The xx), Dave Okumu and Glass Animals, Arlo says, “I’ve always wanted to put together an evening of live music and intimate conversations and in times like these it feels even more special. It’s a blessing to be able to invite people into my musical world and spread a bit of light.”
Co-directed by Transgressive co-founder Toby L and music video director Louis Bhose, the pair add, “In a time where we’re all unable to leave our homes or travel, we wanted to make something that served a little like an escape to somewhere else. Music and performance are by their very nature entrancing and transportative, and we wanted to create a moment, or series of moments, that perhaps you can get lost in. Artists often have to fit into a format; this time, we wanted to build a format around the artist instead. Arlo is the perfect person to guide the viewer through a world, being that her words and music are an absolute encapsulation of our era. We hope that Tonight With Arlo Parks has the scope to surprise, soothe and entertain.”
