2. The Whole Of The Moon
In the summer of 2018, Mystery Jets recorded two tracks at Metropolis Studios in Chiswick. The tracks were cut live to vinyl as the band played them live in the studio in front of a live audience. The tracks recorded were ‘Stormborn’, an unheard song from the ‘Curve of the Earth’ sessions, and a cover of The Waterboys classic ‘Whole Of The Moon’. The band said of the release:
“At Metropolis Studios this summer, we invited a small audience of special guests and competition winners to witness a one off recording session of two songs. With the help of the erudite team at the Chiswick studios we performed an unheard song from the “Curve of the Earth” sessions called “Stormborn” as well as the Waterboys classic “The Whole of the Moon”. Performing both numbers twice each we then asked our guests on the other side of the glass which rendition of the two should be committed to vinyl. It was an exhilarating experience as well as a rear chance to wholeheartedly commit to a musical moment in time…no editing, no fussing, no auto-tune."
