THE WEDDING PRESENT '24 Songs' UK tour 2023 announced for Limelight, Belfast

The Wedding Present

The notion of issuing a monthly 7” single is, of course, not new to The Wedding Present – they did the same thing with the ‘Hit Parade’ in 1992 – but ‘24 Songs’ shows that even classic concepts can be reinvented.

David Gedge has re-curated full-length versions of all twenty-four tracks for a spectacular album that will also comprise five bonus recordings, including one featuring the band’s first guitarist, Peter Solowka.

He says: “I decided not to sequence the tracks in chronological order. With six sides of vinyl, you have six ‘beginnings’ and six ‘ends’ to play with, and I felt that the opportunity to build some kind of a musical journey was too good to miss! Listening back to this collection, I have to say that I genuinely believe that, for this project, The Wedding Present have recorded some of our best tracks yet. I loved releasing the singles, but it’s satisfying to have them all rounded up together.”
