When Morcheeba last toured Brazil, they stayed in a Sao Paolo hotel with a swimming pool bar called the Skye Bar on its roof. One day, singer Skye Edwards was swimming in the pool when the manager came up and told her, “You do realize this pool is named after you, Skye?”

This gives some measure of how far and how deeplyMorcheeba’s influence has spread since they first sketched out the blueprint for trip-hop with their debut album Who Can You Trust?

It’s a journey that has taken brothers, Paul and Ross Godfrey, from their native Kent, and Skye from East London, to performing for tens of thousands of ecstatic fans in destinations across the globe, along the way releasing seven successful albums of ground breaking music that reflects the most positive aspects of modern culture.

With a career spanning over 18 years and with millions of album sold worldwide, Morcheeba now return with their eighth studio album. Head Up High, set for release on October 15th 2013 via [PIAS] America, follows up their 2010 success Blood Like Lemonade and sees the enlistment of a featured guest list that includes Chali 2na (Jurassic 5), James Petralli (White Denim), Rizzle Kicks, Ana Tijoux and Nature Boy, highlighting the magnitude of Morcheeba’s career success and influence on a wide variety of artists both old and new.
