The new studio album from Marillion is once again the proof of the band constant evolution. As the title suggests, Marillion have picked 12 of their own favourites (hits and hidden gems) and reduced them to the minimum structure possible to reconstruct them with an intimate and minimalistic approach.
“Less Is More” is Marillion’s 16th studio album and it is built on fans favourite repertoire from albums like “Brave”, “Seasons End” and “Marbles”, titles that already clearified the unbelievable talent of all band members and defined their sound in a new way. Not a live album and not even an unplugged album. Less is More is „Marillion reinterpreting Marillion“.
It’s a full-band studio recording - no remixes. 12 stunning completely new performances. An avantgarde pop experiment, Marillion limited themselves to the intimate format, using only acoustic instruments - reducing the arrangements to the bare essentials. Marillion are to shine new light onto their songs when they present them live in an acoustic format in the upcoming tour. The band will be selecting songs, some of which they have never performed live, giving them new arrangements and a new edge.
