Song of the Day: Philip Selway – Picking Up Pieces

Philip Selway has shared the captivating video for his new single and LP highlight, ‘Picking Up Pieces’. Driven by a dynamic pulse, along with guitar work from Portishead’s Adrian Utley, complemented by distinctive string arrangements, the track beautifully exemplifies the expansive, cinematic sound Selway has forged on his new record.

Commenting on the track Selway says: “Picking Up Pieces is a song about the masquerade we do when we are young adults. It’s a time in life when your sense of identity can waver, you can feel anxious about taking the next step, and life can feel like it’s spiralling out of control, but you try to hide it from everyone.” His new album Strange Dance is out on 24 February via Bella Union. Enjoy the tune!
