PLACEBO TO RELEASE THEIR RECENT ‘MTV UNPLUGGED’ PERFORMANCE ON NOVEMBER 27

 “We wanted to do something extraordinary, something that would challenge us. The process has been interesting, because we were creating something while we were performing it. That was something we had never done before. The simultaneity of the performance and the creation process was completely new for us.” – Brian Molko

 With their 20th anniversary approaching, Placebo have announced the multi-format release of their recent performance for MTV’s Unplugged special. Out 27th November, the 17-track release features classic Placebo tracks, modern hits as well as some unique cover versions and guest performers (Joan As A Pollce Woman and Majke Voss Romme AKA Broken Twin) joining the band on stage for this iconic show.

Placebo’s MTV Unplugged performance was an exclusive show that saw them perform at The London Studios encased within a giant, transparent cube, onto which spectacular visual effects were projected. Unusual instruments were also used on stage by Brian Molko, including a colourful tube that, when manipulated out of shape, produces an array of transcendental sounds that helped embellish the group’s performance. Pushing the boundaries for this show was a key factor for Molko:

“The biggest challenge was to recreate these songs in a new and appealing way,” says Molko. “Because at the end of the day, we, too, wanted to be surprised. It wasn’t going to be enough to just sit at the piano and strip the songs down to their bare bones.” 

Stefan Olsdal adds: “Once we found out that we were going to play this show we were on a mission to make our contribution to the ‘MTV Unplugged’ story equally exciting for us and the audience.”
