The Wedding Present ready new album ‘Going, Going…’ (listen to two songs)

the-wedding-present

The Wedding Present will release their ninth album, titled Going, Going… on September 2 through the band’s own Scopitones label. It marks a bit of a departure for the long-running group, as frontman David Gedge explains:

I’d already decided by then that I didn’t want to make the next release just ‘another album’ and so I came up with the idea of twenty ‘interconnected’ pieces of music. Then, in the summer of 2014 I travelled across the USA with photographer Jessica McMillan and we made some atmospheric short films to accompany the tracks. Since then it’s been a case of progressing through the music, trying all sorts of ideas, seeing how they work set against the visuals.

The album opens with four orchestral instrumentals, definitely a first for TWP, like the piano-forward “Sprague” which you can listen to below. You can also check out a more typically guitar-oriented track, “Bear,” below as well.

You can pre-order Going, Going… which comes with a DVD of all the accompanying films. The band are also doing a short UK “Going, Going” audio-visual tour where they’ll play their forthcoming album in its entirety in front of films. They’re got a regular tour scheduled as well, though no North American dates as of yet. All are listed below.
