Jordan Luck Announces National Tour + Covers Al Park's 'I Walked Away'

Monday 11th February, 2019 1:42PM

New Zealand music icon Jordan Luck (The Exponents) has unveiled a bighearted rendition of 'I Walked Away', a song by Christchurch songwriting figurehead Al Park, who amongst his many ventures once played the role of a pimp in Dance Exponents' 1983 video for 'Victoria'. The new track is drawn from upcoming covers collection Better Already - The Songs Of Al Park, featuring re-imaginings of Park's songs by Marlon Williams, Delaney Davidson, Adam McGrath, Anita Clark and more. Produced by Davidson, the record is out this Friday, with a launch party featuring Luck, Al Park and contributors happening that night at Christchurch's Blue Smoke.

That's not even close to the only show Jordan Luck's got up his sleeve, as he's just announced an extensive tour of Aotearoa with his Jordan Luck Band, hitting venues near you with a fistful of singalong classics in the coming months. The first ever New Zealand Music Hall of Fame inductee is in fine voice as he busts out a spirited rendition of Parks' tune, scope out a rundown of his upcoming events here and listen to 'I Walked Away' below...
