Public Service Broadcasting share their new single and video, “Blue Heaven”

Public Service Broadcasting have shared the lead single and video, “Blue Heaven”, of their forthcoming release Bright Magic, due out on on September 24th, 2021 via Play It Again Sam. The song Features vocals courtesy of Andreya Casablanca of Berlin garageistes Gurr, “Blue Heaven”, is an anthem of proud self-determination inspired by Marlene Dietrich, who according to the band’s J. Willgoose, Esq. was “a self-made myth to come out of Berlin”. He explains, “the lyrics highlight her power of self-manipulation, her ambition, her bravery and her lack of compromise on vital matters of character – ‘I am all my own invention / I’m in my blue heaven’ and so on. It’s named after the jazz number “My Blue Heaven” which she sang regularly and which she said first made her dream of America.”

The video was directed by Alex Southam (Alt J “Tesselate”, Bring Me The Horizon “Mantra) and features a remarkable performance from the German dancer, choreographer and multidisciplinary artist, Celine Fortenbacher, which perfectly encapsulates the energy of the song.

Public Service Broadcasting will tour the UK this October and November with a show at London’s O2 Brixton Academy on 10th November 2021. Full dates are listed below and tickets are available HERE.
