Regular readers of 'What's That You're Doing?' may remember at the end of 2013 Paul released eight stickers for use on the Japan-based messaging app LINE. To mark the beginning of Paul's summer U.S. tour he published a new set of 40 stickers for the platform. Check them out HERE!
Were you watching the World Cup earlier in the month? Paul was watching and noted how several of the stadiums being used for the tournament were venues where he had played live. To celebrate this, we worked with Paul on a comprehensive walk through his concerts in the country including previously unseen photographs from the archives. To read the article click HERE!

Did you catch any of the footage from this year's Glastonbury Festival? The coverage reminded publicist Stuart Bell of Paul's headlining performance at the 2004 festival. Paul's set his first-ever festival appearance and regularly cited as one of the best from the festival's history holds many happy memories for Stuart who penned a new 'For Whom The Bell Tells' to celebrate the 10th anniversary.
