We’ve just released loads of exclusive live videos that were shot at Eden Sessions gigs since 2002 on a brand new YouTube channel called Eden Sessions TV.
Videos will be released on a monthly basis with the first batch including tracks from Plan B, who showcased his groundbreaking Ill Manors record at Eden last year, and Jack Johnson, who played a sell-out show at Eden in 2010. Also featured in the first release is the 2011 performance of The Flaming Lips, widely regarded as one of the best live acts in the world, and Australian musical comic Tim Minchin who headlined last year. Tracks from Frank Turner, who headlined the Folk Session last year, and Primal Scream, who brought their legendary Screamadelica Live show to Eden, are also available.
As well as live performances, Eden Sessions TV features backstage interviews. Tim Smit, Eden’s Chief Executive, discusses modern urban Britain with Plan B and environmental issues with Jack Johnson. There is also an interview with Jarvis Cocker, who reflects on his experience of Pulp playing the first ever Eden Session.
Tim Smit said: “The launch of Eden Sessions TV allows people to see artists they love performing the songs they love in a place they love.”
Jack Johnson said: “The Eden Project is one of those rare music venues. It’s a special place where the surroundings are so powerful they become an active part of the show. It’s one of the best venues in the world.”
