Is it really necessary to redo the songs in your back catalogue? I would think not, but apparently the great Patrick Wolf disagrees.

There’s possibility for confusion to ensue with this version of ‘Overture’, the first song to released in video form from Patrick’s new double album out on the 15th of October. (The original is the opening track to 2007’s ‘The Magic Position’ which, incidentally, I chose as my Good Day Bad Day song when Steve Lamacq interviewed me on 6music 4 years ago.) FYI ‘Sundark and Riverlight’ are mainly reworkings of already previously released material (which strikes me as somewhat disappointing, considering how talented he is). For a comparison, I’ve embedded the live video of him and his crew performing the original version of ‘Overture’ at Glasto 2007 so you can view them side by side.

The details of his November/December acoustic tour are here.
