Today we're thrilled to release Nada Surf's new live album, Peaceful Ghosts Live With Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg! The album was recorded this summer with the Babelsberg Film Orchestra in collaboration with the Austrian national radio station FM4. The result is a beautiful recording, collected from two live performances in Vienna, Austria and Potsdam, Germany early this summer. It covers Nada Surf classics like the delicate melancholy of "Blonde On Blonde" to showcasing new favorites from their critically-acclaimed studio album, You Know Who You Are, including "Rushing" and "Out Of The Dark". Last week, Peaceful Ghosts was streamed in its entirety along with a feature on Nada Surf front man, Matthew Caws at the Wall Street Journal, check it out here.

Nada Surf announces new live album

Following the release of their album You Know Who You Are earlier this year, New York-based Nada Surf are set to release a new live album entitled Peaceful Ghosts Live With Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg, which is due out Oct 28th.

Peaceful Ghosts came about after Nada Surf frontman and main songwriter Matthew Caws received a surprise email asking about a potential collaborative orchestral project with the Austrian national radio station FM4. A little over a year later, the result is a beautiful recording, culled from two live performances in Vienna and Potsdam early this summer, that covers a broad stylistic range, from James Bond at one extreme to the joy and wonder of Walt Disney at the other, with a whole range of surprises in between. Classics such as the delicate melancholy of "Blonde On Blonde" unfold to surprising new places with soaring countermelodies, while new favorites from You Know Who You Are, including "Rushing" and "Out of the Dark", showcase the power and majesty of the original without losing the lyrical and musical subtlety that has become the hallmark of Nada Surf for the past twenty years. 13 Sep 2016
