Paul Mac announces new album ‘Holiday From Me’
Sooooo … as you might be aware, I’ve been doing a bit of late night drunken face booking with posts like:
– THE ALBUM IS NEARLY FINISHED,
– now I’m at mastering here’s a picture,
– now I’m writing thank you’s etc.
Yes, i take my time, I’m a virgo and we fully reserve the right to take forever on the minutest of details that only some will recognise, but that’s just the way it is.
But now, it’s official. My new album ‘Holiday From Me’ (kinda apt title after being away for ten years huh?) is coming out in April.
Over the last ten years I’ve been up to heaps of stuff. Theatre music with Frank Woodley, a film score with Kath & Kim, co-wrote the score for Bangarra’s BLAK, collaborated with heaps of people such as George Michael, Troye Sivan, and followed my heart making abstract techno with my partner in crime Stereogamous, who also remixed Sia, LCD Soundsystem, Kylie…….. so steady on, I haven’t been laying on the lounge smoking bongs, i’ve been out there pounding away, but at the back of my mind were these songs, ‘Holiday From Me’.
I can’t wait to share it with you. It features a bunch of killer vocalists including Kira Puru, Megan Washington, Ngaiire, Dave Mason (The Reels), Shaun J Wright (Stereogamous, Hercules & Love Affair), Brendan Maclean, Nathan Hudson (Faker), Benjamin Fraser and Tim Derricourt (Dappled Cities). It’s classic Mac melancholy but a tad more pumping this time round.
If you can’t wait til April, come to the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras where I’ll be showcasing a few of the songs during my DJ set with special guest vocalists.
There will be heaps more news coming up over the next few months so stay tuned for further details. Thanks for your patience and support. I’ll be seeing you real soon
Lots of love, Mac!
NEW SINGLE STATE OF WAR (FT. KIRA PURU & GOODWILL)
