Lawrence Arabia's Singles Club Album Release Tour Announced

Lawrence Arabia's Singles Club Album Release Tour Announced

Wednesday 23rd January, 2019 8:00AM

Award-winning Auckland songwriter Lawrence Arabia aka James Milne is wrapping up his year-long Singles Club project with a much-teased new album and release tour with five piece band, happening in venues across Aotearoa this April. Milne's ambitious collection gathers together twelve songs, each originally released to the public on a monthly basis like clockwork from February 2018 onwards - with final single 'Just Sleep (Your Shame Will Keep)' out today, featuring legendary Beach Boys collaborator Van Dyke Parks!

A raft of special guests dropped by Lawrence Arabia's studio to contribute their talents to what could have been a solitary undertaking, including Hollie Fullbrook (Tiny Ruins), Heather Mansfield (Brunettes), Ryan McPhun (Ruby Suns) and Liam Finn. Hats off to Milne for concluding the one-of-a-kind project and taking listeners on a wild ride, his record is out on vinyl LP and retrofuturistic compact disc on Friday 29th March via Honorary Bedouin Records. Check out the tour info here, watch a short documentary on the collection directed by Florian Habicht (Kaikohe Demolition) and hear 'Just Sleep (Your Shame Will Keep)' below...

Press release:

James Milne is a brave human. Whilst the sleeves of many artists are adorned with well-worn hearts as they release their complete albums into the world, as singer-songwriter Lawrence Arabia, James’ latest project offers a rare glimpse into the creative process through 12 separate Lawrence Arabia’s Singles Club releases – now available on digital services and soon on one handy LP or CD and bringing together an extensive list of VIP members.

And that, as they say, is a wrap! ...well nearly...Twelve songs in twelve months. Written, produced, mastered and released digitally. Tick!

Next up is the release of the physical versions of this opus on March 29, 2019 to be quickly followed by some out of the box show dates around New Zealand complete with a six-piece band.
