As we’ve come to expect over the years... a Wedding Present album isn’t always a straight-forward release and ‘Going, Going…’ is no different. This one is actually a collection of 'linked' tracks, each with a beautiful accompanying film. Given the nature of this unique project, the release comes in three audio-visual formats. Over to David Gedge...

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