Last month You Me At Six released their brilliant new album 'SUCKAPUNCH'. Amongst the pulsing bangers and bold expressions, there are moments of tenderness as well. And there is none more tender than 'Glasgow', a tear-stained, slow-burning heartbreak anthem.
So how do make a stunning sad song even more stunning and sad? You can a full orchestra, that's how.
The band have released footage of them playing the track live from the iconic Abbey Studios with the Wired Strings orchestra in tow and it's a stunningly emotional performance of a song that clearly means an awful lot to the band.
Vocalist Josh Franceschi had this to say about it:
“Recording a rendition of Glasgow with an orchestra at the historic Abbey Road Studios was a collective career goal. It was truly special to take a song written in my basement, recording it in Thailand and then performing it live in Abbey Road Studios.”
