The Wedding Present have announced they're going to spend 2022 releasing a new 7" single every month as part of the "24 Songs" series. If this sounds familiar, the band first did this 30 years ago, for 1992's Hit Parade series, which had them tying Elvis Presley's record most Top 30 UK hits in a single year.
"Even though The Wedding Present have never been known for taking the easy route, the idea of recording 24 tracks and releasing them in this way could seem daunting to any band," says frontman David Gedge. "However, I’ve been utterly inspired by the music that has been written since Jon and Melanie joined the group. The thought of celebrating this exciting new line-up with an exciting new series has motivated us all...and I suppose we also didn’t want any of these songs to be hidden away in the middle of an album!”
