One of our real highlights of the year has been our involvement with BE and One and The Hive. From the record release, to the live shows, to the opening of The Hive at Kew’s Royal Botanical Gardens, the whole thing has been an inspiration.
As the year draws to a close and the critics and retailers announce their hits of the last 12 months, we’re proud to have seen One show up at #23 in Rough Trade Shops’ Albums of 2016 list, as well as being featured in the end-of-year rundown from the fantastic Drift Record Shop.
And it doesn’t stop there: BE have recently recorded three new tracks. The first, ‘Blue Lullaby’, was released as a single on Rivertones just a few weeks ago. Thanks go once again to BBC 6 Music’s Mary Anne Hobbs and Lauren Laverne for their enthusiastic support. The track now has a video, which you’ll find at the top of this post.
Along with Blue Lullaby, the other two new tracks – titled ‘Swarm’ and ‘2 Feet of Snow’ – have been added to the digital version of One, culminating in a deluxe edition of the album called BE One Plus, which is now available to buy and stream. You can find it here in the Caught by the River shop – or on iTunes, if you’d prefer.
