Filmed at Peak Cavern in Derbyshire, UK, the performance brings 'Beyond The Pale full Circle', as two of the tracks on the album (“Must I Evolve?” and “Sometimes I am Pharaoh”) were recorded at this very location when JARV IS… performed here in 2018. The performance was filmed and directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, known for their work on Nick Cave’s film '20,000 Days on Earth'.

“Beyond the Pale was written (& partially recorded) in front of a live audience, so it feels extra-strange not to be able to take it on the road at the moment,” Jarvis Cocker explains. “Fortunately, our friends Iain & Jane suggested a way round the problem: set up our equipment in a cave & they would film the results. We have invented a new way of playing a concert.”

Beyond the Pale is the first original music from Jarvis Cocker since 2009’s “Further Complications”. It has been praised around the globe everywhere from The New York Times to NME to Rolling Stone to MOJO.
