The incomparable Jordie Lane has announced plans to release a brand new album, GLASSELLLAND on the 16th September this year. This will be Lane’s first full length studio album in 5 years and is said to see him push his sound far beyond the folk and alt-country sound he has become synonymous with.

“It felt like fresh start, a time to get back to my youthful ways, approaching music with naivety and fearlessness,” Jordie Lane explained. “There was this sign on a hill, around the corner from our first recording space that stood only 3 metres high, that said GLASSELLLAND in big block letters. It was this ironic take on the original HOLLYWOODLAND sign. Instantly it became the symbol for the album before we’d even started writing. It was like a visual mantra that said: “Your dreams are endless!” But the difference was it was not all glossy and fake Hollywood. It was a mundane, regular working class, real, gritty, neighborhood. Not far from what my hometown of Thornbury was like when I was growing up in Melbourne. Being the producers and engineers, Clare and I learnt how to use the recording gear, and inevitably our lack of knowledge gave us a sense of freedom and the so called “mistakes” gave the record a truth and authenticity that couldn’t be orchestrated any other way.”
