Blackbird takes flight
Fat Freddys Drop release their third album Blackbird, on Friday. To celebrate, they're live streaming their London album launch show via Youtube on Wednesday June 26, from 8pm GMT (that's Thursday June 27, 7am in NZ) . The video will be repeated at 8pm NZT that night.
"We're off to Europe to release our new album …and to help NZ & the rest of the world be a part of this, we've gone & hired a humungus satellite dish so that we can broadcast live our Album Release Show in London.
So no hard feelings please …our Aotearoa fans! Its just too hard to compete in NZ with the wit & intellect of Daniel Bedingfield & the NZ X Factor. Jokes aside, Europe has become our home away from home. We are performing to huge audiences over there & it just keeps growing each year.
Get up early! Crack some champagne … and party with the Freddys! Take the day off maybe & keep charging!
The official Blackbird release dates are: New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Germany - 21 June / UK, France - 24 June / USA - 9 July.
