Auckland-based songwriter and performer Anthonie Tonnon is poised to release his new record, Successor, next week. The album is the first under his own name and will be composed of nine tracks that are (for the most part) written as second person narratives. "I wanted to write songs which, when you heard them, could feel like a condensed experience of reading The New Yorker’s "Reporter At Large" column," Tonnon explains. Long-time fans will be familiar with Tonnon's narrative style from earlier efforts Up Here For Dancing (2012) and Fragile Thing (2010), both of which were released under the Tono And The Finance Company banner that was retired in 2013, making room for new projects including writing and road-testing the material for a new album.

The recording of the Successor was undertaken at The Lab studios in Auckland and utilised a personal collection of analogue equipment, giving a mixture of fidelities to the album, which has been kept fairly tightly underwraps in anticipation for next week's release. UnderTheRadar was lucky enough to have a sneak peek at the track listings and decided to delve a little deeper and ask Tonnon some questions around the song names...
