Death Songbook: Singing into the Darkness
With Brett Anderson, Charles Hazlewood and Paraorchestra, and featuring special guests Nadine Shah, Adrian Utley (Portishead) & Seb Rochford (Pulled By Magnets, Acoustic Ladyland, Sons Of Kemet). Brett Anderson, Charles Hazlewood and Paraorchestra are joined by guest vocalist Nadine Shah in a one-off special performance of music by icons such as David Bowie/Jacques Brel, Echo and the Bunnymen, Skeeter Davis, Japan, and Suede. An exquisite songbook featuring delicate new versions of songs about death, the death of love, loss, and transcendence. This rich set - amplified by the diversity and virtuosity of Paraorchestra musicians and the talents of Adrian Utley and Seb Rochford in new arrangements by composer Charlotte Harding - journeys through the melancholy and euphoria of loss. Performed in the vast emptiness of the largest lyric stage in Europe, Death Songbook reminds us that music is our greatest friend in bleak times; meeting our sorrow head-on, it comforts, nourishes, and uplifts.
