Long Awaited Parlotones Album out Soon!
The bands 20th anniversary year will see a brand new studio album titled China’ released both locally and internationally. Recorded over a four month period at High Seas Studios in Johannesburg, the creative process commenced with lead singer Kahn spending a period of time in England with a selection of renowned songwriters to establish the path the album would take.
Working with the likes of two time Ivor Novello Award winner and Grammy nominated songwriter Sacha Skarbek, Richard Archer, Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly musician Sam Duckworth and a selection of other songwriters the foundation of the album was born.
The album offers 25 tracks (Double CD release) that is sure to appeal to the bands fans around the world as well as to open them up to a whole new audience with their ever-evolving sound, yet still maintaining that signature Parlotones sound.
