The Wedding Present 'We Should Be Together / Don't Give Up Without a Fight' 7"
First in a new 7" singles series from the Wedding Present. 24 Songs sees David Gedge writing with legendary Sleeper guitarist Jon Stewart for the first time, and a more perfect union could not have been predicted. The first release includes a gorgeous duet featuring David and Louise Wener [also from Sleeper] on We Should Be Together, and it’s coupled with a rousing new track called Don’t Give Up Without A Fight which combines classic Wedding Present feistiness with a Krautrock finale.
The notion of a monthly 7” single is not new to The Wedding Present, but 24 Songs shows us that even classic concepts can be reinvented. The series also continues the band’s association with photographer Jessica McMillan, who has created stunning images and films as a visual accompaniment to the recordings.
