Track Of The Day: Public Service Broadcasting - 'Gagarin'

Using samples and clips from old public information films, the duo Public Service Broadcasting are releasing their second album in February. Following on from their 2013 debut 'Inform - Educate - Entertain', the LP will "tell the story of the American and Soviet space race from 1957 to 1972" and is preceded by their new single 'Gargarin'. The track is inspired by Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, the first man in space, and is described as "A brassy, funk-heavy superhero theme song for the most famous man in the world at the time."

The vinyl version of the album comes with a reversible sleeve featuring a USA Sleeve on one side and a USSR on the other.
