WATCH: Public Service Broadcasting - 'Blue Heaven' (ft. Andreya Casablanca)

There's certainly some trepidation when a favourite artist releases a new track... Public Service Broadcasting however prove time and time again that there is absolutely nothing to worry about. I tuned in to BBC 6 Music on Monday afternoon for the first play and it was love at first listen. Different, but with that inherent PSB spark running through the centre - those signature riffs for one thing, harking back to their early releases. Blue Heaven is the second track and lead single from their upcoming fourth album Bright Magic, releasing on 24th September via Play It Again Sam. The track features the sublime vocals of Andreya Casablanca from Berlin's Gurr

Arriving with a superb video directed by Alex Southam and featuring German dancer, choreographer and multidisciplinary artist Celine Fortenbacher, Blue Heaven is a pure delight, and is lyrically inspired by Marlene Dietrich. The band's J. Willgoose, Esq. explains that "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."
