As most of Aotearoa happily takes one step down from strict level 4 restrictions this morning, Don McGlashan has shared some exciting news to keep us hyped about the months ahead. The legendary frontman of The Mutton Birds and Blam Blam Blam has revealed his fourth album Bright November Morning is on the horizon to release on 29th October, to be celebrated with an extensive nationwide launch tour in November. McGlashan's all-star live band will again be The Others, the formidably talented team of Shayne P Carter (Straitjacket Fits, Dimmer), Chris O’Connor (SJD, Phoenix Foundation) and James Duncan (SJD, Dimmer), who all also contributed to the new record. While there's no singles out yet from his first long player in six years, you can savour the details on the Silver Scroll winning songwriter's forthcoming tour right here...

Press release:

Renowned Aotearoa musician Don McGlashan has announced his eagerly-awaited new album today. Bright November Morning will be released on October 29th, followed by an eight date tour across New Zealand, beginning November 11.

This will be McGlashan’s fourth solo album, and is an essential addition to his remarkable output. It has all the glittering McGlashan touches in place: from the detail-perfect narratives of local life (the neighbours looking in when we take the curtains down, swimming and seeing Russian container ships on the horizon) to the strummy melodicism with detours into something noisier (hello Shayne P Carter, ruffling the immaculate surfaces), and on to those welcome and welcoming choruses.

Recorded in Lyttelton, Auckland and Vancouver, and full of inspired playing from his band The Others: Shayne P Carter (Straitjacket Fits, Dimmer), Chris O’Connor (SJD, Phoenix Foundation) and James Duncan (SJD, Dimmer), Bright November Morning marks a new stage in Don McGlashan’s generous and humane songbook.
