FAT FREDDY’S DROP announce iTunes Session
and their only headline NZ summer show at Auckland Zoo on Valentines Day
Since it’s nearly Christmas and all – we need to start planning our Valentines Day??? Kidding – but this would be an awesome show, saw them live at last years Winery Tour and they were brilliant!
Straight off the plane from Tokyo and into Auckland’s Roundhead Studios, Fat Freddy’s Drop recorded six tracks live to be released exclusively as an iTunes Session, and is available for pre-order Friday 28 November.
The iTunes Session captures the finely honed and galvanised energy of the Freddy’s live performance after a prolific year of headline international shows. Highlights included the sold-out Alexandra Palace show in London (capacity 10,000) and a much anticipated Japanese debut in Tokyo.
The track list features recent single release Slings and Arrows from the bands forthcoming studio album; a haunting version of Dark Days, a track not re-visited since BOATS (Based On A True Story, 2005) and even Wandering Eye even makes a reprise as part of an extended This Room. Bringing the session to a close the band drop a completely new track available only on this iTunes Session, the deep techno jam Cortina Motors MK1.
Full track-listing: Slings and Arrows, Russia, Blackbird, Dark Days, This Room (The Wandering Eye Reprise ReRub), Cortina Motors MK1
Released globally on Friday 12 December, the Fat Freddy’s Drop iTunes Session is available for pre-order Friday 28 November on iTunes at: https://itunes.apple.com/

Fat Freddy’s Drop also announce today their only NZ summer headline show atAuckland Zoo on Valentines Day, February 14th before they return to Bays Studio in hometown Wellington to keep recording the new album.
Playing between lions, rhinoceros and monkeys is nothing new for Freddys who headlined sold out shows at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo and Melbourne Zoo earlier this year.
As one reviewer noted, “Fat Freddy’s Drop showed those zoo animals how to be wild.”(summersite.com)
