“Orchestrated has been an incredible journey for us as a band” says Kahn Morbee, lead vocalist, The Parlotones. “Our main objective was to re-work many of our songs by incorporating a chamber ensemble led by Brendan Jury. The process was very meticulous as we wanted to create alternate versions of the tracks and not just add strings etc to a song thereby giving our fans a whole new experience of songs they have been listening to over the years.”
The Parlotones Orchestrated is released in two physical formats. One is the CD with bonus DVD and the other is the DVD with bonus live CD. The live CD is also available for digital download on all platforms – http://smarturl.it/Orchestrated
