The album is also released in the form of a book, containing writing contributed to the theatre show and photography taken during the making of the the album, film and theatre production. The beautifully-designed, 32-page book is the work of Studio LR and is available via www.thoughthenight.net

The album release is just one part of a much bigger, ongoing project of the same name, created by theatre director Cora Bissett, playwright David Greig and Swimmer One. Whatever Gets You Through The Night began with a live show at The Arches, Glasgow in June, which sold out completely before its opening night, and got four star reviews in The Guardian, The List, The Scotsman and The Herald. We are hoping to revive the show next year.

The film accompanying the project by Daniel Warren also has also been well received, and will tour in 2013 following its premiere at Summerhall during the 2012 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The cover image for the album is taken from Daniel’s film.

If you are a promoter interesting in stain the theatre show or screening the film (alongside live performances from the artists featured), get in touch.

Album reviews:
“A terrific pop anthology” – The List ****

“On the evidence of the 15 acts showcased here, the rest of us may have seriously neglected the talent currently thriving north of the border.” – BBC

“a mixture of melancholy, solitude and that lucid dream state that can come with sleeplessness” – The Herald ****

“A breadth of moods as varied as human experience, combining neatly into a vivid nocturnal tapestry.”
The Skinny ****

“Everyone will recognise themselves in these heightened vignettes of communal joy and urban alienation.” – Mojo ****
