Following on from Fat Freddy’s Drop’s triumphant return earlier this year with their
genre bending third LP, the seven-piece soul crusaders are back with a deluxe
edition of ‘Blackbird’.
The new version includes the "Blackbird" album in full plus a bonus disc "Fade Up
Fade Down" featuring 8 exclusive tracks of studio out-takes and off the cuff
musical meanderings.
"They're the creative process laid bare, everything from underground stand up
comedy, a soundtrack for a puppet feature film to experimental blues. They're the
sound of Fat Freddy's Drop writing in the studio", Tony Chang explained.
Written and recorded in the bands home studio of The Bays, ‘Blackbird’ melds
together an unholy mix of disco, rootsy dub, blues, soul and electronic funk.
Released in June this year ‘Blackbid’ scored the band another number 1 New
Zealand along with the bands highest UK chart position. Since it’s release
‘Blackbird’ has consistently sat in the top of 15 of most shared albums on Spotify
throughout the summer.
The deluxe version comes with a casebound album book featuring 60 pages
of live and behind-the-scenes photos beautifully presented in a hard cover bookstyle
