Pre-sale of the week: Public Service Broadcasting – The Last Flight, out 4 October

Public Service Broadcasting - The Last Flight

The Last Flight is Public Service Broadcasting’s version of the story of pioneer aviator Amelia Earhart’s final, ill-fated journey in 1937. Rather than focus exclusively on the flight itself, the record examinates Earhart’s remarkable character: a rare blend of grace, composure, technical aptitude and a fortitude that the rest of us mere mortals can barely dream of, all enveloped by the soul of a poet. She was possessed of a seemingly unquenchable thirst for life – in her words, “to find beauty in living … to know the answer to why I’m alive … and feel its excitement every moment.” That thirst for the abundance of life, the sheer joy and privilege of living, long outlasts her disappearance and death, and this record is an attempt to translate that inspiration into music.

Note: The LP is initially available on clear vinyl, exclusive to independent shops.
