The Bowers & Wilkins Society of Sound release for February is an exclusive preview of new music from electronic-pop pioneers Heaven 17, where their combination of sharp social and political commentary and widescreen musical accessibility remains firmly intact.
Not For Public Broadcast is a ‘work-in-progress’ version of the group’s new album that exposes the process of how Martyn Ware and Glenn Gregory are working in the studio.
“We wanted to show partially-finished versions and to be honest about how things are created. It’s still skeletal in a lot of ways, it’s still open to change and it’s not mastered.”
This Society of Sound release is the only way to get these new songs in a digital form.
For those that like to join-the-dots between artists, Heaven 17’s first album, Penthouse & Pavement, released in 1981, was engineered by Peter Walsh. Walsh went on to co-produce Peter’s Plays Live and Secret World Live albums.
