Wayne Hussey & The Divine - Live at Yellow Arch CD
We are pleased to confirm the release of Wayne Hussey & The Divine - 'Live At Yellow Arch'. Recorded over 2 days - 31st October and 1st November - during the rehearsals for the recent special one-off show at Whitby, the album comes in CD, and limited clear vinyl.
This incredible group of musicians have produced a mesmerising interpretation of some of the best tracks from not only The Mission back catalogue but also something new from the recent Beauty in Chaos release, a song that Wayne wrote in the 1970's, and a haunting version of Mazzy Star's 'Look On Down From The Bridge'.

Wayne says: 'Working with The Divine - these wonderful and very creative musicians - was one of the musical highlights of my life. To take the songs and to work each one of them into a thing of unique beauty was a singularly inspiring experience. One I hope to repeat sometime. Until such time I am so glad I had the foresight to record the rehearsals, which took place at Yellow Arch Studios in Sheffield. We'd rehearse during the day and then in the evenings we'd rehearse in front of a 30 plus strong live audience. These recordings are us performing live, no overdubs, no going back to fix 'things' as you can hear when I get the lyrics wrong on a couple of songs. (Nothing new there then.) It's all about the performance. My hope is that these versions of these songs will touch the listener in a way that perhaps the original versions can't and don't, or at least in a different way. It seems fitting to me somehow to make this album available to pre-order on Valentine's Day.'
The album will be released on both CD and a Limited Edition Clear Vinyl edition with full details below and copies of the CD release will be available on the upcoming Mission tour.
