Hilltop Hoods’ New Single Provides A Collaborator Reunion

Hilltop Hoods have reunited with ‘1955’ collaborators Montaigne and Tom Thum on a brand new single, ‘A Whole Day’s Night’. The new single follows the Hoods’ collab with Eamon‘Show Business’, which landed earlier this year. ‘A Whole Day’s Night’ arrives as the Adelaide group’s national arena tour kicks into high gear, with Brisbane up this Saturday (27th August).

‘A Whole Day’s Night’ is something of a self-referential release for Hilltop Hoods, who use the track as a way of responding to their 2006 release, ‘What A Great Night’.

For fans of ‘1955’, the Hoods’ new single is going to strike a chord. ‘A Whole Day’s Night’ feels warm and familiar, with Montaigne and Tom Thum’s presence bolstered by the production of One Above.

“It’s a reflection on how we look at the same situation 15 years later,” the group said of the relationship between ‘A Whole Day’s Night’ and ‘What A Great Night’. “How what we considered a celebration back in the day, could be considered a regret in the present.”

They continued: “The song had a real ‘1955’ feel to it, so we decided to get the lineup of Hoods, Montaigne, Tom Thum and One Above back together. And it feels like we found that same chemistry again.”

‘1955’ was released as a single from the Drinking from the Sun, Walking Under Stars Restrung album in 2016. Six and a half years later, it remains one of the group’s most successful releases to date. Peaking at #2 on the ARIA Charts, ‘1955’ has been certified 9x Platinum and came in at #4 on the triple j Hottest 100 of 2016.

“One of my creative resolutions for this year was to collaborate with my friends more so it is good timing that Suffa asked if I wanted to be on another Hoods track,” Montaigne said of reconnecting with the Hoods. “Very grateful to share light from their star once again, and to be able to contribute my voice again. It feels like documenting a friendship as well as who we are as artists so many years later.”
