New album features Eden Sessions greatest hits

“The seduction of music introduces new audiences to our work and, by association encourages people to get involved with us,“ says Tim Smit.

The Eden Project and Warner Music have released a 2-CD compilation of music by artists who have played at the Eden Sessions, marking the tenth year of the iconic gigs. The collection includes tracks recorded live at the Cornish venue by The Doves, Paolo Nutini and Mumford and Sons.

The Eden Sessions are a series of one-day gigs that take place at Cornwall’s Eden Project every summer. This year’s headliners were Primal Scream, The Flaming Lips, Fleet Foxes, Pendulum and Brandon Flowers.

The double album features tracks from some of the best recording artists of the last decade and documents the early days of the Sessions with tracks from Pulp, Elbow and Beth Orton, moving through to more recent headliners such as Muse and Kasabian.

Tim Smit, Eden Project Chief Executive, said: “Music is central to Eden's culture as it brings about unforgettable moments of community togetherness and, by extension, a sense of inspired optimism that fires all that we do.

Bands who played support slots at the Sessions are well represented too, highlighting Eden’s history of booking the hottest acts as special guests. Mumford and Sons, Mark Ronson, White Lies and Villagers are all featured. Cornish acts are well represented by singer-songwriter Ruarri Joseph and nu-folk outfit Crowns.
