With Placebo’s 20th anniversary coming up, you could forget the band for having a chill. The bands have already released seven studio albums of which five have topped the German album charts. Placebo have also sold over 12 million albums and huge tours performing before millions of fans worldwide.
Their chill has materialised in the shape of a revamped version of MTV Unplugged with the band playing stripped down versions of their catalogue.
About the album frontman Brian Molko said:
“We wanted to do something extraordinary, something that would challenge us. The process has been interesting, because we were creating something while we were performing it. That was something we had never done before. The simultaneity of the performance and the creation process was completely new for us.”
Below is the tracklist, which will be released on 27th November:
