Arlo Parks Enlists Romy (The xx), Dave Okumu and Glass Animals For New Variety Special Out 1/29

Tonight With Arlo Parks will arrive imminently. Premiering globally on Friday 29th January, the same day as Parks’ debut album release, viewable at 8pm UK time on the Amazon Music channel on Twitch and the Amazon Music app, before being made available on Monday 1st February via Prime Video.
The film – presented as a “Variety Hour Special” – emulates the spirit of classic, artist-fronted TV formats from the 60s and 70s, yet revamped and reimagined for the 20s. Across a series of bespoke stage set-ups and featuring a plethora of musicians and special guests, Tonight… will serve as a gripping, immersive document of one of our era’s most breathtaking and acclaimed newcomers.
The hour-long show features a curated selection of Parks’ songs to date, such as singles “Eugene,” “Black Dog,” “Hurt,” “Caroline” and “Cola,” plus first ever performances from the eagerly awaited debut album Collapsed In Sunbeams (releasing Friday January 29th via Transgressive Records). Beyond this, there are conversations, poetry readings and collaborations, all existing in a plethora of evocative and gradually unravelling environments.
Also joining Arlo are peers and contemporaries Romy (The xx), Dave Okumu and Glass Animals, as well as an expanded band line-up featuring additional brass and strings players. All arrangements have been uniquely scored and assembled for this one-off performance.
It will premiere globally on Friday January 29th, the same day as Parks’ debut album release, viewable at 8pm UK time on the Amazon Music channel on Twitch and the Amazon Music app, before being made available on Monday February 1st via Prime Video.
Speaking of her upcoming appearance on Tonight With Arlo Parks, Arlo says: “I’ve always wanted to put together an evening of live music and intimate conversations and in times like these it feels even more special. It’s a blessing to be able to invite people into my musical world and spread a bit of light.”
