Amazon Music Returns to The Great Escape

The Great Escape festival showcases new and emerging talent from across the globe as well as welcoming back previous breakthrough performers for spotlight shows.

Over the past two years we've had such a great time working with the festival and particularly with our secret shows that we were back in Brighton for a third year from May 19-21.

Singer-songwriter Paul Weller played an extra special gig for festival-goers at The Great Escape. Amazon Front Row Live Secret Show at The Great Escape saw Weller perform an intimate performance featuring songs from his new album Saturns Pattern, released on May 18. Weller opened the show with the lead single off the new album, "White Sky" and continued to perform more brand-new material for the audience, including "Long Time", "Saturns Pattern" and "These City Streets".

Tickets to Amazon Front Row Live: The Secret Show at The Great Escape were available on a first-come, first-served basis to festival ticket holders who registered on The Great Escape website.

The BBC reported: "Weller's enthusiasm for his new material was evident at The Great Escape festival in Brighton over the weekend, where he performed for around 500 fans at Amazon's Secret Show" (Paul Weller: 'I'm not doing the greatest hits show').

Listen to "White Sky" and other tracks from the brand new album, available on CD, CD+DVD, Vinyl or as a box set.
