New Zealand juggernaut Fat Freddy’s Drop announce the release of their new studio album Special Edition Part 1, alongside a new single ‘Kamo Kamo’.
Special Edition Part 1 is out digitally on Friday 15 November with Vinyl LP & CD Available Early December.
Part 1 of a double album, Special Edition Part 1 was recorded at the band’s Wellington studio, BAYS. Of the six tracks, ‘Raleigh Twenty’ ‘Trickle Down’ and ‘Six-Eight Instrumental’ were written undercover in the studio while the other tracks, ‘Special Edition’, ‘Kamo Kamo’, and ‘OneFourteen’ have all evolved on the road with audiences worldwide.
‘Kamo Kamo’ is available now as a digital single release. The late-night steppers exploration is a modern roots reggae fry-up with buttery vocals, compass point keys, salty snares and horn riffs echoing across the horizons.
The new album follows previous releases BAYS, Blackbird, Dr Boondigga & The Big BW and record-breaking Based on a True Story.
The cover artwork for Special Edition Part 1 is by Wellington artist Otis Chamberlain, a continuing evolution from his creation for the album’s first single ‘Trickle Down’.
