This DVD captures the spirit of Gray's live show, and features 19 tracks including "Please Forgive Me" and "Babylon" from his eight times platinum selling album White Ladder plus new fan favorites "Hospital Food" and "The One I Love." DVD extras include footage on the making of Life In Slow Motion and videos for the singles "The One I Love," "Hospital Food" and "Alibi."
While its predecessor, the four million copies selling A New Day At Midnight was essentially autobiographical, each of the songs on Life in Slow Motion has its own subject. "The One I Love" expresses the last thoughts of someone on the brink of death. "Tell Me Something (Hospital Food)," Gray explains, is about living life without control: "You get a lot of shit thrown on your plate, and you eat it."
Since the 1998 release of White Ladder which remains the bestselling album of all time in Ireland, Gray has received an extraordinary list of accolades, including a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist, a GQ Award for Best Solo Artist, two BRIT nominations for Best British Male, two Ivor Novello songwriting awards and a BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) nomination for the composition "From Here You Can Almost See the Sea," a different version of which appears on Life in Slow Motion.
