Angus and Julia Stone Announce Details of New Album

Having already released their new single “Snow” and announcing a September tour it’s no surprise that this week Angus & Julia Stone also revealed details of a brand new album.

Also titled Snow, the new album is due to be released on the 15th September. The album follows their 2014 self titled release which was produced by Rick Rubin.

“That was the first time that we actually started writing together, in the same room, and I guess we took a leaf from that chapter into this record,” Angus Stone explained. “This time round though, every song on the record we wrote together”

Snow is self produced by the pair and was recorded in Angus Stone’s Byron Bay hinterland cottage studio.

“It was quite magical because Angus and I have never spent that much time together, just the two of us,” says Julia Stone. “There’s always at least an engineer or tour manager but the last phase of writing and recording was just eight weeks of him and me and the quiet of the land. It was a beautiful time.”

The full track listing and album teaser for Snow are below:

1. Snow
2. Oakwood
3. Chateau
4. Cellar Door
5. Sleep Alone
6. Make It Out Alive
7. Who Do You Think You Are
8. Nothing Else
9. My House Your House
10. Bloodhound
11. Baudelaire
12. Sylvester Stallone

Angus & Julia Stone will be touring this September – the full dates are here:

Thursday 21st September – Tivoli, Brisbane, QLD
Saturday 23rd September – Palais Theatre, Melbourne, VIC
Tuesday 26th September – Enmore Theatre, Sydney, NSW
Thursday 28th September – Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide, SA
Friday 29th September – Perth Concert Hall, Perth, WA
