Chantage were invited to record at Abbey Road Studios with indie band, Elbow, in a live performance/recording of their Mercury Music Prize winning album, The Seldom Seen Kid. The recording was broadcast on BBC Radio 2 and then screened on the BBC's Red Button and online for seven days (Saturday 31 January to Saturday 7 February).
Over 1 million views were recorded from people pressing their Red Button or going online to watch the unique performance Elbow gave with Chantage and the BBC Concert Orchestra, making it the most popular music session ever shown on the BBC's Red Button.
Lewis Carnie, Head of Programmes for Radio 2 and 6 Music said: "I'm delighted that so many Radio 2 listeners accessed one of the finest live performances we have ever recorded for Radio 2."
Elbow's lead singer, Guy Garvey, said: "The whole experience of playing in such a historic studio with an amazing orchestra and choir was one of the best things we have ever done as a band. There were plenty of moments where we had to take a deep breath so we didn't all start blubbing."
This new version of the album, Seldom Seen Kid, is now available as a limited edition box set online, including a CD and DVD of the live recording session.
