about

Heavyweight soul providers Fat Freddy’s Drop take flight once again with their third full-length release Blackbird.

Featuring nine tracks, Blackbird was written and recorded at Bays, the band’s own studio, which was one of the last vinyl pressing plants in New Zealand and then an apostolic church. Fitchie says, “What you hear on the album is the sound of Bays; the room itself, the vibe of the place and the performance we can get out of the band in there.”

“Blackbird is truer to FFD's musical philosophy than anything else we've done”, says Chopper Reeds. “The song structures are open and unruly - just like our live shows - whilst we've pushed ourselves to deliver rich and deeply layered arrangements that showcase Joe Dukie's exceptional voice. We feel totally at home melding together this unholy mix of disco, rootsy dub, blues, soul and electronic funk - it's what we do.”

This deluxe version of the album features:
8 previously unreleased tracks
Exclusive album interludes from the cutting room floor

about

Fat Freddy's Drop Wellington

Internationally regarded as one of the world’s finest live draws, 7 piece band Fat Freddy’s Drop hail from New Zealand.
FFD has navigated its way from an incubator of sunshine reggae thru a colour-saturated field of soul psychedelia before swerving onto a desolate Detroit superhighway at night. It’s a potent mixture of jazz virtuosity and diaphragm-wrecking digital sonics. Experience FFD live.
