Someone already has! Chandos recorded the 8th with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra under Jac van Steen. The symphony was coupled with two orchestral works "A Vision of the Sea" and "Toward Sunrise". The recording was made in November 2017 but has not yet been released.
Why Chandos have held the recording back is anybody's guess. I hope that it will now not further be delayed by the issuing of the new Nimbus cd.
