"We're really looking forward to hearing what people in Liverpool think, and to our plans for 2016.

"We have more city launches in the works, new projects including The City Talking: News, and more feature-length films."

Ahead of the Liverpool launch, The City Talking has unveiled a revamped website that now includes specific city sections and The City Talking Player, which showcases work from the its film division, where the trailer for upcoming documentary The City Talking: Music in Leeds Vol.1 premiered this week.

This hour-long film, made in partnership with the BBC, "applies the storytelling sensibilities of The City Talking newspaper to a 35-year period when music made Leeds a city where you didn’t want to miss a note, a beat, a synth stab or a chord".

It will receive its full premiere at the end of November.
