Joe Stretch and Hurts collaborate on interactive novel exclusively for Spotify. Blimey And Anna Friel pops up again !
Joe Stretch (Performance/novelist) and Hurts have created a wonderfully unique experience on Spotify in which you get to play the protagonist.Narrated by actress Anna Friel, ‘Don’t Let Go’ is an interactive audio novel which utilises Spotify in a completely new and unexpected way. Each chapter of the novel has been published as a track on Spotify, and can be located by typing a unique code into the search field. After listening to each chapter of the story you’ll be offered a choice of what to do next, along with the unique code for each action. Your mission – should you choose to accept it – is to stop arch villain Guy Lockhart from distributing his heartbreak cocktail and condemning humankind forever to a loveless, empty existence.
As well as the audio novel the synergy between the two bands continues as Performance will be supporting Hurts on their upcoming uk tour,dates.
Seeing as the The Pogues have just announced their farewell tour….. a great, great band…
