So many new things...

It's a big week this week here in New Zealand and not just because it marks the beginning of the second half of a rainy winter - I have a lot of shiny new things to share with you.

1)  My debut solo album, Clouds Are Alive, is now available to pre-order via iTunes for just $14.99 and you'll immediately be able to download the first single, Bad Philosophy. Like the clouds in the sky, there's something for everyone on there. It'll all be seamlessly delivered to your warm embrace on July 25 if you get in now:

2) If you're into CDs - you can pre-order physical copies of the album via JB Hi-Fi or Mighty Ape plus I'll be announcing some special opportunities to pre-order personalised versions very soon.

3) The second single from my album, "Run, Run", is out now on NZ radio and iTunes - if you like running, buy it now and take it everywhere you go. I actually hate running, but I like guitars:

4) Finally, I can also reveal the video for the above-mentioned single - I hope you enjoy it as much as one of those hedgehog instagram accounts:

NZ album and single details revealed

Today marks another massive milestone for me in this new chapter of my musical career.

After so much behind-the-scenes work and talk, I can now confirm that my debut solo album is called Clouds Are Alive and will be released in New Zealand on July 25.

Over the coming weeks I will be revealing insights into its conception with you and announcing pre-order details and events.

I can also announce that the second single from the record is called "Run, Run" and will be released in New Zealand June 20. As a way to tease this track, I've posted the original acoustic demo of the song along with the single artwork on my youtube channel and is viewable below.

In revealing the acoustic version of this track before the studio version, I'm hoping it will make for an interesting journey for listeners - to hear how a song can progress and grow. So please let me know your reactions when you hear each version.

Thanks again to all who have helped me get to this point - am so stoked that I can now say, 100%, that I have a new album out next month.
