Can announce new live album Live in Brighton 1975, share excerpt

It’s the second in a series of live album releases.

German krautrock pioneers Can are releasing another live album. The forthcoming record, entitled Live in Brighton 1975, is due to be released in December via Mute and Spoon Records. It follows the first instalment in the band’s Live concert album series, Live in Stuttgart 1975, which was announced in February and released in May. 

Live in Brighton 1975 was recorded during a show in the seaside city. The release is split into seven sections, with a rare Michael Karoli vocal featured on Brighton 75 Drei, and a Jaki Liebezeit drum lead on Brighton 75 Vier. The album leads with an excerpt of Brighton 75 Sieben, which you can check out in the player above.

The album’s sleeve notes were penned by Can biographer, author and editor Rob Young alongside journalist Kris Needs. As with Live in Stuttgart 1975, and future instalments in the Can Live series, the music featured on Live in Brighton 1975 is lifted from the group’s best bootleg recordings. The material was then mixed and remastered, with Can’s Irmin Schimdt at the helm of the project alongside producer and engineer Rene Tinner.

Live in Brighton 1995 lands on 3 December. Pre-order the album here and check out at the tracklist below.
