Jordie Lane Announces New Album and National Tour

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.”

To celebrate the release of GLASSELLLAND Jordie Lane and his new band The Sleepers will be heading out on tour this October and November, kicking everything off with an appearance at Dashville Skyline. Check out the full list of dates below:

Thursday 29th September to Sunday 1st October – Dashville Skyline, NSW
Friday 28th October – The Corner Hotel, Melbourne, VIC
Saturday 29th October – Republic Bar, Hobart, TAS

Thursday 3rd November – Jive Bar, Adelaide, SA
Saturday 5th November – Sutton’s House Of Music, Ballarat, VIC
Thursday 10th November – Newtown Social Club, Sydney, NSW
Friday 11th November – Heritage Hotel, Wollongong, NSW
Saturday 12th November – Street Theatre, Canberra, ACT
Thursday 17th November – Woolly Mammoth, Brisbane, QLD
Friday 18th to Sunday 20th November – Mullum Music Fest, Mullumbimby, NSW
