Released September 2002, UP was the final part of the two-letter, single-syllable trilogy produced by Peter (and mixed by Tchad Blake and Stephen Hague). Hundreds and hundreds of hours of recordings were made, ultimately being slimmed down to the final ten tracks.
UP reveals itself to be another deeply personal statement, with birth and death being near-constant themes. It is what Peter calls a "book-end" record. Mostly recorded at Real World (although some initial recordings were made in Senegal, France and on a boat on the Amazon), the album sees contributions from the likes of Peter Green, Danny Thompson, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Daniel Lanois, the Black Dyke Band, Peters daughter Melanie and the late, great Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan.
