OK, you’ve had enough time to digest the album. You can only pick one track, go for it! Can’t decide yet? The poll will be on the sidebar alongside the rest of the polls DMB has run over the last decade.

I’ve also updated the long running ‘Your Favourite Doves album’ poll to include The Universal Want. With over 2200 votes so far, it may be a bit unfair on the new album. But if it is your new favourite album..

Live Session Videos

Back on Stage!

Doves returned to the live stage earlier today for the first time since Gunnersville back in September 2019! That feels like a lifetime ago right?

They performed for BBC 6 Music live in London. The session went live to air, they did three tracks, all of course from the new album. Great to hear live versions of Carousels, the latest single and 6 Music A playlist song ‘Broken Eyes’ and strong next single contender ‘Cycle of Hurt’.

After a year away from the live stage, of course there were imperfections. But I’m not here to discuss that, though if anything those imperfections reinforced how much we all miss live music, willing the band on to play the best version they possibly can, ‘endearing’ as many on the socials called it. Listening to the live session with fellow fans as we all ‘work from home’ it was a rare moment of joy and pleasure during the monotony of the lockdown wherever you are.

A big thank you to all who made the live session possible. It genuinely was a rare highlight of 2020. It should also be mentioned the new album was listed on 6 Music’s top 10 albums of 2020 (#9!) well deserved too. Saturday, December 5th will be ‘The Universal Want’ day on BBC 6 Music! More on that soon…

If you missed the live session, you can listen back to the show here. Starts 2 hours 34 minutes in.
