Public Service Broadcasting announce new album 'The Last Flight'

Following on from their much-loved 2021 LP 'Bright Magic', Public Service Broadcasting have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving later this year.

The new full-length 'The Last Flight' is being previewed by the lead single 'Electra', which comes accompanied by a new video produced and directed by Yes Please Productions, and is set to be released on the 4th October via SO Recordings.

Speaking about the new release, the band's J. Willgoose Esq. said, “I wanted to do a woman-focused story, because most of the archive we have access to is overwhelmingly male. I was initially drawn in by Earhart’s final fight, rather than the successes that she had, but the more I read the more I became fascinated by her. Her bravery and her aeronautical achievements were extraordinary, but her philosophy and the dignity that she had… she was an outstanding person.

"The final flight is the spine of the journey: the story jumps off at different points, and examines different facets of her personality, her relationship with her husband, her attitude to flying, her attitude to existing. She gave herself, I think, less than a 50% chance of survival when she flew the Atlantic alone. To put yourself, willingly, in those situations… I think it says something about that drive at the heart of humanity.

"However The Last Flight isn’t doom-laden or covered in grief. There’s adventure, freedom, the joy of being alive. The reason why she wanted to fly was to find the beauty in living – ‘to know the reason why I’m alive, and to feel that every minute.’ The flight did fail, but she was right. Of all the people we’ve written about, I have the deepest respect and admiration for her.”
