- New Zealand seven-piece band Fat Freddy's Drop released their fifth studio album “Special Edition Part 1” on November 15th. It is their first LP in four years.
The album consists of two parts and Part 1 comprises of six-track. The band recorded the album at the band’s Wellington studio, BAYS.
“Special Edition Part 2” is expected to be released in 2020.
On November 20th, the band premiered a new music video for “Special Edition” from the album.
The video was directed by Mark Williams, who created it with puppets like Coldplay's 2009 video “Life In Technicolor ii”.
Mark Williams said, "The Special Edition video is a collaboration with puppet master Jon Coddington. We first worked together with Jon on the 2013 Freddy’s ‘Clean the House’ video. Jon made the marionettes especially for that".
He added, "Jon is an amazing talent! Gathering that many puppeteers in one room is a rare thing and it was an absolute joy to work with them on this. The puppeteers employ many skills form acting, singing, dance and art. A great bunch of people.”
The band will embark on Album Release Tour in Europe and the UK. The tour kicks off at Halle 622 in Zurich, Switzerland on March 7, 2020.
