Public Service Broadcasting Channel Marlene Dietrich On ‘Blue Heaven’

The icon was “a self-made myth to come out of Berlin...”

Public Service Broadcasting return with new single 'Blue Heaven'.

The song is part of their new album 'Bright Magic', which is set to land on September 24th via Play It Again Sam.

A record prompted by Berlin – it's history, culture, and iconography – it dips into the city's unique atmosphere.

New single 'Blue Heaven' was prompted by the life of Marlene Dietrich, an icon who was, according to the band’s J. Willgoose, Esq. “a self-made myth to come out of Berlin”.

Andreya Casablanca takes charge of the brooding vocal, a song of empowerment and reinvention; she sings, "I am all my own invention / I'm in my blue heaven…"

J. Willgoose, Esq. adds: "It's named after the jazz number 'My Blue Heaven' which she sang regularly and which she said first made her dream of America."

Alex Southam directs the video, which features Celine Fortenbacher channelling the energies of the song in her movements.

Tune in now.
