Public Service Broadcasting have announced details of a new album. ‘Bright Magic’ is set for release on 24th September, and this time they’ve chosen Berlin as their muse.
“Doing this felt inevitable, somehow,” says the band’s J. Willgoose, Esq. “In my head, it was whirring and pulsing away for a long time, even before Every Valley - this fascinating, contrary, seductive place. I knew the album was going to be about the city, and its history and myths, and I was going to move there. So it’s quite a personal story. It’s become an album about moving to Berlin to write an album about people who move to Berlin to write an album…”
They’ve shared EERA-featuring track ‘People, Let’s Dance’, and confirmed UK live dates.
The tour will begin at Cardiff’s Great Hall on 24th October, and finish at Cambridge Corn Exchange on 11th November.
