we’re super grateful for this spellbinding live performance from The Unthanks, as they return to their roots by singing brand new songs in unaccompanied harmony.

Recorded live across a five-week tour, these are not live versions of songs made for a studio album. Treating unaccompanied song as a performance art in storytelling that requires an audience, these are the definitive versions! On this record, they fully explore their rich and unique vocal combinations, with brand new material and arrangements. ***This special edition includes the film ‘As We Go’, an atmospheric and beautifully shot account of life on the road, through the eyes of filmmaker Ainslie Henderson. The film features concert highlights, behind the scenes footage, family life and special performances during soundchecks and in found spaces, in and outdoor during the tour, all exclusive to the film and only available on DVD as part of this special edition of ‘Diversions Vol 5 - Live And Unaccompanied’.***
